My first novel, an alt-world fantasy called" By Moonrise," will be published in December 2015, the premiere book in the series The Chronicles of Sarducia. I am posting chapters here each week in anticipation of the official publication, and would love feedback as I tweak the final bits.

I'm also working on a series of time travel/alternative history novels, and hope to publish In the Company of Outlaws in 2016 as well if I can figure out what's not working with my current draft. In addition to the novels, I'm trying to produce a smattering of short stories for contests and online literary publications.

In addition to my fiction, I am a professional copywriter and blog ghostwriter with my own business, Watercolor Moon, and I'm studying independent publishing as a business, as I wish to help others with the process.

I'm also a NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison. I first gave NaNoWriMo a try in 2013, and it literally changed my life, giving me the courage and inspiration to go from a career in tech support to an actual full-time (and then some!) writing career.

You can follow my progress and foray into independent publishing, as well as learn more about my writing, on my personal blog at or my Facebook page,
