I’ve been super busy lately with writing projects. I’ve been editing a lot of Crimson Pact stories, plus I wrote The Cost of a Tasmanian Tiger, and I sold a story called Eureka to I, Hero Magazine. Plus I’m doing research and working on Medusa’s Daughter and The Secret Empire, not to mention my full-time job as nurse in a cardiac unit at Intermountain Medical Center where I'm the chair of the Leadership and Safety committee. Most importantly, Tammy and I just had our 16 year dating anniversary. Fun times.
Your busy friend,
Author of The Dragon Hunters
