Welcome

Hello! and welcome to my website! I am a writer of steampunk and fantasy fiction. My current projects include a Persian-esque fantasy titled The Wizard's Heart (expected publication Spring 2015), a young adult steampunk series (the first book due to release Spring 2015 with Harper Voyager Impulse), and a middle-grade fantasy titled Dark Lord in Training, still in drafting and available to read for free on Wattpad. To read up on my latest progress with each project, you can read a brief summary below each month, or you can follow me on Facebook, Google+, or Twitter for more regular updates.

News

October: I have some very big news for you all! I've signed a three-book deal for the first two books of my steampunk series, and the associated novella, with Harper Voyager Impulse, the digital-first imprint of HarperCollins' science-fiction and fantasy division. You can read more about that in this blog post.

In other news, I'm still working steadily on The Wizard's Heart, though I don't know when I'll be done with it. With the deadlines for revising my steampunk novels looming over me, I'll have less time to work on it than before, but I am determined to finish it, even if it takes me another six months (hopefully not, but I wouldn't be surprised if it did).

In the meantime, if you're itching for something to read, I've started posting chapters of my humorous middle-grade fantasy Dark Lord in Training to Wattpad. I hope to publish one new chapter every week, to every two weeks, as I am able to edit them. You can also read new, first draft scenes as I write them, at the #DarkLordinTraining hashtag on Google+.

And, one last thing that I forgot to mention previously, I have joined a fiction collective called The Scriptors. We blog twice a week about writing, life, books, and other things you might expect writers to talk about, and the other members of the group all have published some excellent fiction if you’re looking for something to read.
