Hi everyone,

Here's the news. We're about to launch
Evelina and the Furry, the third book in the Evelina 

the Water Witch series. 

Very exciting and frightening.

Also, Evelina and the Time Pirates has a brand new cover. 

The cover art is by Caitlyn Chisamore, an amazing artist 
who brought our digital cover to life.  
Isn't it gorgeous!

Hope you're having a magical winter.
Happy February!

Bedtime Books

Hi guys,

Sorry I've been absent.  I'm not good at blogging, am I?
Writing the third book in the Evelina the Water Witch series is
keeping me pretty busy. This Young Adult Fantasy Series
is morphing into a wild, living, breathing thing- so many crazy
plot threads. Yikes!

But, I found some great poetry to add to my bedside collection for 
writing inspiration.  



It makes wonderful bedtime reading. 





Hope everyone's having a great summer!

The Wickedest Villain

A great villain needs to be monstrous. 



There are no half-measures when it comes to writing villains.  Go big or go home.



I knew that, but my latest villain for the third Evelina hadn't quite come into focus. Until, I dreamed about him last night.  Really, it was more of  a nightmare in that moment of drifting between awake and sleep. He was far more evil than I'd imagined.  He scared the pants off  me!

He was demonic--oozing all kinds of evil. I couldn't get him out of my head. I had to pray him away to go back to sleep.  

Now that's a villain.

It wasn't until I was cleaning my office this morning that I remembered the dream and realized who he was. Luckily, he's shown his face, just in time, when the story is taking off and I can't type fast enough.
