I am currently working on the second novel in the Clara Dune series. It is tentatively named Hole of Souls, and it takes place in Argentina. (Yes, I made a travel-research trip to South America.)
I'm giving myself a big challenge: Finish researching it in October--and writing it in November, so I can participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I have a comprehensive computer file of characters, plot notes, and symbolism waiting to be put to use. I can't wait.
