The Brightest Thread (a Sleeping Beauty retelling)
Status: Work-in-progress. Currently editing.
Premise: Luci hates the forced perfection of her magical gifts. Yet when she succumbs to a hundred-year sleeping curse, she finds the dream realm to be a far worse prison. Walking through dreams in search of another dreamer to rescue her, she unwittingly calls dozens of sleepers to their deaths, and vows never to ask for freedom again. But her extended stay in this realm is causing nightmares to escape into the waking world. And far away, a prince is dreaming too. If he is to save the weeping maiden haunting his dreams—and if she is to save him—there will be a high price to pay. For as the fairies say, truest love bleeds.

Journeys of the Chosen*

*(badly in need of a new series title)
A big, epic project birthed nine years ago. A YA portal fantasy rife with dragons, quests, and yes, even chosen ones, but also shot through with raw conflict and world-changing decisions. Official blurb forthcoming.

  1. Hahahaha, I love your poetry description. 'Over 50 pieces, some horrid, others beloved.' That's exactly how I feel (to quote Cinderella 2015). ;) Perhaps you may consider posting some of it?

    2. Yeah, we writers totally are funny creatures. :) Question, is there a way to edit a comment without deleting it?
