All Books in -A Kelpie and Moonbeam Series- are now available!
Here we are crashing into 2018 with so many new exciting announcements!
I want to thank all of the bookstores and Festivals that have hosted me through the year 2017! You have all given me a tremendous boost into 2018! Because of you all, I have gained hundreds of new readers!
I am so excited to tell you all about the new books that I am currently working on!
So many of you have come up to me at book signing events and have asked if I plan to do any writing for boys. And the answer is YES!
—I have just recently finished a book called: ‘H’ is for Hunting Season – A Young Hunter’s Alphabet. This book is currently with publishers for consideration.
—I have just finished working on a book called: ‘C’ is for Chincoteague Pony’-An Assateague Island Alphabet! This book was inspired by an invitation by The Museum of Chincoteague Island!
—My Current Works—
—I am currently working on a non-fiction piece about The Horses of Gettysburg. This book is filled with lots of interesting facts about the -often times forgotten heroes of the Civil War- The horses that gave up their lives by the millions! I have also filled the pages with interesting facts about the Generals and their most, well-known and famous mounts! Title Still Pending… I hope to have this book finished by the end of March 2018 so that I can send it out to publishers for consideration.
—Another piece of literature that I am currently working on is a Children’s Guide to Horse Health and Care. This book will be a very thorough guide to Horse Ownership dedicated to children who are first-time horse owners. Title Still Pending…
—I am also working on a book called: ‘W’ is for ‘Women of the Civil War’. This book is filled with interesting and sometimes crazy, stories of the many women who served in the Civil War.
—I have just completed a STEM based work currently with illustrators- More to come!
—I decided to start a set of Easy Level Readers. Pony Party Surprise is currently in illustration with an Illustrator in Australia- Amy Curran. Winston the Scaredy-Horse Goes on a Cattle Drive is finished and waiting to enter illustration.
—I have many other great book ideas and plan to continue expanding my writing genre to include some non-fiction works.
SOME ESPECIALLY EXCITING NEWS: So, when this whole writing adventure began for me three years ago, it was because of a Contemporary (Sweet) Romance novel that I penned, some of which was based on my own life. Who would have thought I was all that interesting…But the novel was bid on by 19 editors and that particular story was the work that started me down the road to where I am today. After some serious soul searching, I decided to send this novel off to publishers for consideration a few months ago and have had a very positive response to the story because of it’s exciting twist! We are still reworking the plot and getting it ready for release! I can’t decide which I like writing better–Children’s Books or Contemporary (Sweet) Romance! So, I have decided to experiment a little with BOTH! There will be more about this later in the summer of 2018! 🙂
