It's a fun story featuring a brother-sister duo who battle an evil maniac who uses an earthquake machine to terrorize the city.

I also recently finished an adult historical thriller set in 1860 Paris called "Let the Ghosts Speak." My agent is seeking a publisher for that novel.

I am currently working on a young adult science-fiction novel set in another star system, tentatively entitled "Search for the Astral Dragon." This project is expanding both in size and depth, and I am very excited about it.(less)

I never plan ahead. I always make up the story as I go along. I doubt that one method is truly better than the other. It's just that going on the journey with the characters works better for me.

“Not enough info makes for a lot of dead cats."

"What's wrong?" Ashley asked.
