Hello to all who have stopped by this blog over the last six months or so. Forgive my absence. I don't like to delve into personal matters much, but suffice it to say a lot of the writing plans I had six months ago went kablooey when I fell into a pit of anxiety and depression. This is something I've struggled with since I was a child, and it comes and goes, but when it comes it tends to hit me hard. I was about halfway through a writing project I had intended to have released in time for Halloween, and as you well know, it didn't happen. I basically just went into hiding and avoided everything and everyone. This has always been my coping mechanism.
Although my planned project involved a horror trilogy, I have placed that on the back burner for now, in favor of a new thriller series! It's entitled The Disk, Book One of The Virginia White Chronicles.
From within the walls of a criminal asylum, Virginia White tells her
story of a childhood dream becoming a waking nightmare. At fourteen, she
invents a powerful weapon and places the plans on a computer disk. Now
they want it, and they will stop at nothing to get it. Virginia soon
learns that in order to survive she must become as coldblooded as the
men pursuing her. Virginia is forced to lay everything on the line to
keep them from obtaining the disk.~~
I'm really excited to be releasing my first thriller book! It's a vigilante justice book (I had no idea this was a subgenre until I went to publish, but it fits so well in the genre, lol!). It is gory and violent, but it's also a story of survival, not only physically but mentally.
I know I said before I'd be venturing into horror--and I will be, honest!--but for now my plans are to focus on this series, and maybe release something horror later this year, maybe in the fall.
Anyway, I apologize again for my absence, and I hope it doesn't happen again, or at least not anytime soon. In the meantime, I hope you check out my new book. It's available (so far) at:
It should be available at Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and elsewhere within the next couple of weeks. Check back for further updates!
