Back to writing

Hi! For those curious, I'm presently writing a new SF novel. Since the details are secret (which is a new and fun thing of itself) I can share that I'll be returning to Marrowdell and Night's Edge this fall.
Have you been waiting for more house toads, invisible dragons, and Jenn Nalynn?
I'm on it!
