Welcome to the Dark Modern Gothic Tale of 

The Nine While Nine Legacy

Nine While Nine Is Here!

"A Beautiful Blend Of Reality And Fantasy"

Exciting Things Are Brewing!

What have you been doing during the quarantine?

For the past few months,  I've been reevaluating my writing process and the titles that I was working on. I pulled some older ideas out and dusted them off while at the same time I spent copious amounts of time sprucing up my existing outlines and manuscripts.


The results have me more excited about writing than I have been in the past couple of years. I feel refreshed and reenergized. My ideas have been honed and are ready to be explored deeper and fleshed out into submittable works. 

At the same time, I've been cultivating some amazing collaborations with an array of bookish goodies—that are hush-hush for now but super exciting!

What does this mean for my readers?


2020 has been crazy so far, but I still have high hopes.

Nine While Nine—the first book in The Nine While Nine Legacy series—will be joined by its mates, Twelve Turnings and Seven Hollows, along with the YA spin-off, Neverly


Also, I'll be releasing Bed of Ashes and The Overmorrow, two stand-alone novels, both are NA/Adult dark urban faerie tales.

AND...a very special surprise joint-project will be announced in the near future

 I can't wait to share more with you as the details become available!

  AND There's More...

I’m over at Patreon now!


It’s become my new workshop, where everything (the good and the bad) will be. You will be the ones looking over my shoulder, peeking through my window, sifting through the notes on my desk. Transparent real-time.

Patreon is the new frontier. A way to truly allow me to devote my time and full attention to creating wondrous and whimsical tales and art, soundtracks, graphic novels, book boxes, and eventually films!


It's time to shake up my life, and my beliefs in how things "have-to-be-done". I crave authenticity, relationship, true engagement. I want to give you the reality of me, the hard stuff, the gritty and the pretty parts, the wonderful truth of myself and my writing. I've gone the Indie publishing route, and I've traversed the traditional publishing route.

I want to try something different here. I want to forgo what I've already done and venture forth in a new way. I want to offer my creative endeavors at Patreon first. My writing in snippets and ragged chicken-scrawl bits, the compost heap of raw ideas as they transform into something coherent and real.

In chapters. In artwork. In music. In film.


Earn the deepest gratitude

from the very depths of my whimsical heart...

and some internet confetti too!

Leave a Review...Feed an Author!

If you have a few seconds, I sure would appreciate it if you would leave a review at Amazon and/or Goodreads.

Reader reviews are the lifeblood of any author's career. Getting reviews (especially on Amazon) means my rankings will be raised, more readers can discover my books, and I can keep on writing! (And since I have 6 more novels in this series outlined, and at least 20 more new stories rattling around my brain, this would be an awesome thing!)


Plus, I love hearing what you think! 

Every single review is important to me, so please let me know when you leave a review so I can personally thank you!
