Hi, Isabelle. Thanks for reading. :)

I'm pretty sure there will be a fourth story, but there may be other stories first. I'll know more later in the year, but I've been building up to a "Big Bad" type of story more like the original Ava series, so I want to clear that up first (perhaps with a new Ava series) before returning to the more standalone type stories of Lost Souls. I'll be posting monthly on my blog with updates, so check that out if you're interested.

But I can say that if/when I return to Lost Souls, the stories will be less frequent - no more than one a year - so I can focus on new stories and characters. I'm not ready to give up Ava and her world just yet though. :)(less)

Good luck in school, first of all.

I used to write bits and pieces. I'd wake up in the night with an idea and write until I couldn't keep going. But the first time I actually finished a book was during NaNoWriMo, and that helped me figure out how to sit down and throw all of my spare time into finishing a book. An idea that won't go away is a good sign, and all it takes is sitting down and getting words on the page. It doesn't matter if you start at the beginning or write random scenes, it just takes making the time to get something out. Anyone with an idea can write a book - but you have to make writing a priority or even a regular habit.

If you want to use a book to help you plan a story, I know a lot of people recommend Holly Lisle's Plot Clinic, and I've tried it myself and think it's a useful tool, particularly if you're unsure where the story is going.

Enjoy your holidays. :)(less)

Sorry for the overly-dramatic title, (couldn’t help myself) but I’ve been working on some stuff all week, and I’m finally ready to, well, say goodbye, I suppose. I am hanging up my pen. This decision hasn’t come lightly, but a choice had to be made, and while I am upset, I know it’s necessary.


For well over seven years, I’ve had the most amazing, life-changing opportunity, mostly thanks to the c...

“Our history teacher had the most boring voice in the world and no teaching skils to speak of. Every single class, he read aloud in a monotonous tone. Yeah, fascinating. Double history on a Monday morning was a punishment from God.”
