I have never had a shortage of writing ideas. Whether these are poems, essays, short stories or full-length novels, my mind explodes with the possibilities. Not being able to write full-time, I have the conundrum of not only finding the time to write, but deciding which project to focus on. I first published Warriors Within in 2006 with its sequel, Eyes of the Goddess, following in 2010. At this point, the third book in this saga should have been coming out in 2014. Alas, I am sorry to tell my friends that it is not complete. My mind has ventured elsewhere determined to finish projects started years ago.
In 2007 I started a middle grade novel that I titled The Puzzle Quests: Shimmer's Eggs. I put it aside to work on Eyes of the Goddess. I have dabbled with completing it and finally have a completed manuscript, which I am very excited about. So much of my writing comes from my life and those around me. Shimmer's Eggs is inspired my Nick and Stephen and their many adventures with their childhood friends Tyler and Emily. I loved wriitng this book, because it brought me down memory lane and their voices are so strong in my head.
