Folks, it’s been a while. Over a year? I haven’t lost myself in a desert or a rain forest or any other biome. I’ve been busy doodling on non-science fiction projects.

The thing is, my science fiction series (both of them), deserve awesome covers, and I’m not in a place to provide those yet. For that reason, I hopped over to my sweet romance pen name and planned a six-book series. Oops.

I’m currently working on book two of said series. Needless to say, it’s going to keep me busy for a bit longer.

Good news is, I’m learning to write faster. Bad news is, I’ve only learned to work on one project at a time. I’m itching to tell my science fiction stories, but alas they will not be birthed into the world until 2023 at the earliest.

However, I recently took a two-week vacation from writing. During that time, I dreamed up several new stories, one of them being a horror short story. It’s outlined and ready to go, just waiting until I complete my current WIP so I can turn my focus to it.

I’ve never written horror, and I’m curious to try. It will be an experiment for us both. When the story is complete, I’ll post it here and send it to my newsletter subscribers.

I’m excited to try to spook the pants of some people, figuratively, of course.

Thanks for sticking around while I move at the pace of a sloth crawling through a tar pit.
