I JUST finished writing the manuscript for the third book of the Sunset Rising series, titled "New World Order." It's currently with the editor and I have an expected release date of January 2015.

I have a lot of ideas for my next project that range from a simple, old fashioned YA love story, to a more action-packed science fiction romance story. Any suggestions? Oh, and I also intend to write some novella off-shoots of the Sunset Rising series. Love to get your feedback on all of that!(less)

Hi Wendy,

Your question is really timely because I've had a lot of emails about where the series is going. Something that has touched me is how many readers are dubbing the rest of the series P.I.T. As a tribute to everyone who has supported me, PIT is now the name of the spin-off series of Sunset Rising. I plan to write novellas that resemble episodes, focusing on the same characters in the post apocalyptic world I've created.

Admittedly, I've taken some time off writing due to life's challenges. But I'm back into it and hope to have something new out soon! Thanks so much for getting in touch. It's support like yours that encourage me to keep on writing :) xo(less)
