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)

Kicking of NaNo 2020

[image error]



I ended the first day of Nano 2020 at 3244 words. Which is excellent. I do admit that I am not doing a straight-laced Nano this year. Instead of starting from scratch on a brand new manuscript, I have unearthed the thing I started earlier this year that COVID derailed.
