I'll update this page every few months, so you know what I'm working on right now. 8 December 2019. The winter snow has come and gone in Kyle at least for now and we are fighting the mud.  I've started editing Forbidden Light, Light Chronicles #3, and I've been doing some research for some of my other books I am working on.


My fiction writing has taken a backseat to school but I feel as if I am back on track and plans are under way for 2020.
