WORLD ON FIRE

In a world knocked off grid by massive solar flares and Earth’s thinning atmosphere, people on the ground are forced underground in a desperate fight for life.

“The smell stops me near the water’s edge. I tug the neck of my shirt up over my nose as I look around. Carcasses litter the shoreline. Animals tried to escape the fire, driven by instinct to plunge blindly into the shallow waters of the parched river. Deer. Rabbits. Raccoons. So many others unrecognizable in death. The heat was too much and they had nowhere to go. Their salvation had become their cemetery.”

Cover reveal – WORLD ON FIRE

It’s been a hectic month between cover reveals, editing, the World’s Best Story competition and NanoWrimo.  Somehow, some amazing things have still come together.  One of these “things” is the cover to World On Fire, releasing in  February 2016.

World on Fire is a futuristic, young adult novel.

2043:  In a world knocked off grid by massive solar flares and Earth’s thinning atmosphere, people on the ground are forced underground in a desperate fight for life.

Bon appetit~~

As an author with much on my plate, I don’t often take the time to cook for myself.  I’ve been craving a cajun pork loin with 15 bean soup, so I got everything out, prepared to demonstrate my culinary expertise. Spaghetti will be ready around 5 ish.

As the heady aroma of garlic, basil, tomatoes and a blend of savory spices settles around me, I’ll be immersed in the James Patterson Master Writing Class.  I find classes, workshops and retreats to be a boon to my career in the opportunities presented working with the masters and learning from their expertise. It’s also a great reprieve from my own writing demands which, at present, include completion of two books by years end.  Neither book involves cooking.

I do, however, write romantic comedy and YA novels.  I’m eyebrow deep in the sequel to Life in a Nutshell (Life Bites), and a YA apocalyptic book, Phoenix Rising.  Keep your eyes open for updates, which will be posted here.
