Thank you so much! I'm so happy you enjoyed Jilo.

I have a couple of new projects vying for my attention right now, one a new paranormal series set in New Orleans, and the other a non-paranormal mystery series set in Portland, Oregon. Trying to get the details on both hammered out.

Never say never, though, I love the Taylors, Wills, and Pooles. If the right story comes along, and my publisher is open to a follow-up, I'd love to revisit Witching Savannah in the future. (less)

In JILO (coming in April), I have two lead female characters, Jilo, of course, and her grandmother May. I hope you'll enjoy meeting May, as well as Jilo's younger self. I'm also really happy with the two sympathetic male point of view characters, Jesse and Tinker. Fingers crossed they'll prove worthy counterparts to the women. (less)

Hell's Princess by Harold Schechter
“No, sir!” cried Maxson, clearly incensed at the suggestion that he might engage in an activity as effete as reading fiction. “I want you to understand here and now that I do not read novels, no kind of novels!”
Harold Schechter

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Nothing is more dangerous than a dogmatic worldview - nothing more constraining, more blinding to innovation, more destructive of openness to novelty.”
Stephen Jay Gould

“Southerners are an easygoing race when it comes to aberrations of conduct. They will react with anger if something out of the ordinary is presented as a possible future occurrence; but if an unusual circumstance is discovered to be an established fact, they will usually accept it without rancor or judgment as part of the normal order of things.”
Michael McDowell, Blackwater: The Complete Caskey Family Saga

“Speed on my book! spread your white sails my little bark athwart the       imperious waves,”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

“Finding my occupation, poverty, notoriety, foibles, crimes, less       important than I thought,”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

“Shut not your doors to me proud libraries,   For that which was lacking on all your well-fill'd shelves, yet       needed most, I bring,   Forth from the war emerging, a book I have made,   The words of my book nothing, the drift of it every thing,   A book separate, not link'd with the rest nor felt by the intellect,   But you ye untold latencies will thrill to every page.”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
