I recently had some fun with Natasja Hallenthal, a published author and book cover designer at Beyond Book Covers. Together we came up with a new cover for one of my favorite books, The Spirit Child. Natasja is super talented and wonderful to work with. Thank you, Natasja!
Next, I’d liket to introduce you to Nathaniel Gauthier, a young mage who begins life a little awkwardly, but is destined for great things. He makes his debut in the soon to be released novel, Mage of Merigor.
In addition to that, I’m still working on the fourth book in the Alex Wolfe Mystery Series, Credo’s Bones. In April, I’m going in for hip surgery, and hope to have a lot of time to follow Alex and her buddies around and report on the trouble they always seem to get into. I’ll keep you posted.
As always, if you’d like to receive updates on upcoming book releases and would like to receive the first book in the Alex Wolfe mystery series completely free of charge, please join me by signing up for my Newsletter
