Tell us about your books. any more in the works?
Currently I am working on several ideas. I have four or five stories, all running amok in my head. I have anywhere from 10 to 20 thousand words on these stories, so each of them seem to be developing. this creative chaos is very different for me, and rather than fight it, or attempt to corral it, I am simply going along with the flow. It's a little scary and defnitely exciting, because I niever quite know where (or who) I'm going next. One minute I'm fighting evil peruvian drug-running shamen, next I'm a speechwriter for the first woman nominated for president, and every now and then I'ma bisexual warrior out of Iris myth. There's also one aobut a oven of cute witches, as well as my ever-evolving trilogy spinoff from the Silver books. So who knows what's next or in the works? Maybe the next one will be a mix of them all!
And that's just three!
