This is BOOK ONE in the Sally Singletary series:

Fans of NANCY DREW will appreciate Sally Singletary’s drive, determination, and humanity while the Science Fiction and Fantasy elements bring in a modern edge that FRINGE and HARRY POTTER fans will enjoy! 

WHAT FANS ARE SAYING: 

“I just finished reading this book! It was fantastic! I couldn’t put it down!” 

“5-Stars!” “Adventurous!” “Great Read!” “Loved it!” “Read it twice!” 

Sally Singletary started as way to bring back the nostalgia of the Nancy Drew series. After re-reading some of the originals, it was clear that any attempts at staying true to the original were going to be difficult. Nancy Drew catered to a different era. While keeping aspects of Nancy Drew mysteries, the author wanted a fresh and contemporary feel and perspective. To that aim, this series takes the best qualities of Nancy Drew and puts them into a Fantasy world. Faced with more than simple small town crimes, these books bring more excitement to a modern audience. This isn’t the Nancy Drew you remember! But it retains the sense of mystery and wonder while throwing in some romance, magic, and friendship.

New Horizons

So a lot has happened, but at the same time, not as much as I’d like.

I’ve had a new idea, a book I’ve been working on for the past few weeks. It started as just making a few notes and has turned into 36,000 words.

 

 Concept Cover

Jimmy Figg is snatched by a group of hideous creatures, but the thing that has always made him a thorn in his teachers’ side and an outcast among his peers has given him a unique advantage. Can Jimmy use his ability to find out the truth behind his abduction, or will his captors succeed in their insidious plan?

I’ve been working out this idea for a few weeks and so far I’m really liking it. I am hoping it will be a good Early Young Adult addition to my repertoire of books. What do you think?

In other news, Sally Singletary’s Discovery is finally available on Kindle. Physical books are still delayed due to formatting issues. Awaiting another set of proofs right now. Hopefully these will turn out correctly and we’ll be in business!

Tears of Destiny is still on hold pending a workable cover. We’re still throwing around a few ideas, but nothing seems to have “tickled our fancy.”

Children of Earth is also on hold. I’ve had some feedback and have decided to rework the story. While most everyone who has read it has had a lot of positive things to say, I think the feedback I received is valid and warrants some consideration. Will keep you posted on the progress.

It has begun…

Ok, so I’ve started sending out queries to agents, which has been the most nerve wracking thing I’ve ever had to do. Here’s where you start to doubt yourself and question why you started doing this in the first place, I mean it’s only been ten years of my life I’ve devoted to developing the story for this thing and the reality is, even after all that work it could still suck and not go anywhere. Writing is a profession you do because you love it! If you write only with the expectation of being the next J.K. Rowling then you’ve missed the point. It takes a lot more than just a lot of hard work, it takes a lot of time, energy and dedication. Only then will you truly be a writer. I have a lot of people to thank for all they’ve done to provide encouragement throughout the development of this project. I hope to have a nice printed page with all their names on it when my book rolls off the press! Here’s hoping!
