I’ll update this page somewhat regularly, so you know what I’m working on right now!
March 16, 2022
Woo-heee… “somewhat regularly” actually means, “hardly ever,” lol! I’ve been toiling away over at YouCanToucan.com creating things and getting the non-fiction/book coaching/project management side of things up and running. I put out the first book on the 8th. There’s a free email course that’s pretty much done–I just need to add links to the audio recordings for it–and a full paid course. I’ll be launching the “founding round” for the full course in April. Yikes! I just committed to that, so I guess I better make sure I do it!
From a fiction perspective, I made the decision to provide a free short story to my fiction newsletter subscribers every month. If you want in on that action, make sure you sign up for my newsletter either by getting the free eBook or signing up in the footer on any page on this site. I’ve also added a story prompt to the end of every newsletter in case you want to join in the fun.
The plan is to get back to drafting book 3 in the Origin Codex series in November this year. I’m itching to get back to fiction (hehehe! That rhymes kind of).
The reason I’ve put so much of my energy into the You Can, Toucan! side of things is because I want to make some money so I can eventually quit my day job and have all the time in the world to work on both sides of my author life. I wrote about this in my December newsletter.
Anyway, I can’t stay away from fiction for too long. I have stories that are begging me to tell them. I have a trilogy to wrap up! I have many many books to write!
So, yeah. You Can, Toucan! is my life right now. I’m hoping to get a good start on the next book in that series in May, or maybe I’ll come back to fiction at that point. We’ll see! Check back here to find out!

July 1, 2021
I’ve been busy working behind the scenes getting everything set up for launch day! August 19th, the sequel to THE BLOOD OF SEVEN will finally be available! Pre-orders are set up now. Check out my library to find the pre-order link. I’m expecting my line edits back tomorrow. Once I get the line edits implemented on the first three chapters, my Reader Group gets to read them! If you aren’t part of my Reader Group, sign up either for the free eBook advertised on the home page, OR in the footer below. Alternately, I’ll have a sign up form for the free chapters up as soon as they are ready. There is one caveat, however, and that is if you haven’t read THE BLOOD OF SEVEN, the first chapters could contain spoilers. Lucky for you, I’ll be dropping the price of the ebook significantly! Stay tuned!

Happy day after Summer Solstice! I was up to my eyeballs in goat blood and virgin skin last night when I realized I haven’t updated this in a while… hahahaha, just kidding (about the virgin skin).
So much has been happening behind the scenes! I have a cover reveal for my new book coming up in July, along with some freebies, so stay tuned here and on the books/library page for more info! If you signed up for my email list, you’ll get notification about these fun things there, as well, because I am NOT Verizon. My current peeps get everything my new peeps get. Stay tuned!
The sequel to THE BLOOD OF SEVEN is with my editor again for a round of line/copy edits. I’m expecting it back on June 30th.
Otherwise, I took some time off this month to relax and get back into an exercise regimen. Currently doing the Beachbody on Demand class, “Let’s Get Up!” which is a dance workout. So, basically, I throw my body around my workout space, thinking I look JUST LIKE the amazing dancers on the screen, but really I look like Elaine:
I’ve also worked out my book production plan for the next year! It includes the (hopefully) conclusion to the Origin Codex series, as well as one other book that I’m pulling out of a drawer to dust off. It’s a zombie story. 🙂
