I am very pleased to be releasing my third book today! Unlike either of my first two published works, this one is a short story collection; the tales contained within have been labours of love for over six years now!
There are some who would say it is dangerous to do so much genre-hopping so early in a writing career. I have written adult contemporary fiction, released the first of a youth fantasy series, and now this short story collection! But I am excited to be able to jump around and not confine myself to specific styles of storytelling. Your career is only young once, right? To butcher Hamlet: There are more stories in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in one genre of literature! (Apologies to Mr. Shakespeare.)
Perhaps the time will come when I concentrate my energy into a singular genre, but until then, I hope you enjoy the products of my wandering mind!
