In August of 2014, my previous publisher, Blue Feather Books, closed their doors. It had taken me 15 years to find a home with them, and I never imagined after three published novels that I would be looking for a new publisher.
As luck (or the Universe) would have it, Affinity E-Books Press found me. They will be reissuing Nesting on October 15th, just in time for my reading/signing in P-town. I’m very excited about Nesting’s second chance since it was only out for three months before it disappeared off all the usual sites. Flight and Confined Spaces will follow and I will let everyone know when I have exact dates.
I am also very excited about my newest novel, 23 Miles, which will be released in March of 2015. 23 Miles is the fictionalization of a real, unsolved double-murder that occurred in October of 1986 on the Colonial Parkway. Being from that area, the brutal murders of Cathleen Thomas and Rebecca Ann Dowski hit me hard. It hit my community hard. Even though I have fictionalized the characters and the events around the murders, I have left a lot of the crime’s details intact. I did this in the hopes that it would perhaps jump start memories people may have of that time and place, memories that may even bring about new leads in this case. I will have much more to say on this subject soon.
I am so stoked about this new chapter in my writing life and can’t wait to see what is next.
