In the five years it took me to land my dream book deal, I wrote more than one book. I believe in back-up plans.
Blood Moon, the first book in the Moonlight Trilogy for young adults and witch fans, acquired by Jolly Fish Press, to be released June 22, 2013, was the second book I wrote. The third book, which I wrote while Blood Moon was on submission, is A Painted Life.
A Painted Life, literary fiction, is very dear to my heart and when I learned that my match-made-in-heaven publisher wanted it as well as my trilogy, I think my heart stopped. I swear I have died and gone to author’s heaven!
A Painted Life is slated for release fall 2014.
Saffron is a painting. Brought to life, unknowingly, by the hand of the artist, she is color on canvas, but she is also so much more. From her prim white chair, surrounded by sunflowers, pretty Saffron watches the world move beyond the edges of her silver frame.

A huge thank you to Christopher Loke, my editor, for reading it and loving it and also to Kirk Cunningham, my publicist for writing a press release that made me cry and for loving the book.
Another big thank you to my agents Fran and Jenn, who also love the book, and have believed in me from the start.
