Oh, goodness. I didn't even see this section of Goodreads. So sorry this has taken so long!

I'm glad you liked the review. I feel bad because I really wanted to like that book, but ... the girl just did *nothing* for too long.

In answer, yes. I have several novels out. My most recent is Tapped, a science fiction that I call "the underground railroad in space."(less)

Worldbuilding and Me

So, not that long ago I picked up Million Dollar Outlines by David Farland and I loved it. I have often struggled with Outlining versus Discovery writing because I fell into the category that once I had dreamed up the whole thing into an Outline, I no longer had the motivation to write the story.
