My Writing

I have been reworking my query letter based on suggestions I have received. I’m also working on rewriting book 1 of the series and work on book 2 to get it started. I will post snippets of book 1 soon.  Thanks to everyone who started following  me over the last few weeks. Hope I can keep you entertained as I go through this journey I am on to write my books.
