The second of the Artists & Cottages series, Blues & Echoes reflects depression, the mental health issue presented in this story, as well as the mountain setting of Durango, Colorado. Find info and buy links on the Artists & Cottages page.
The third story of the series is coming to the end of completion with an expected release of fall 2016. Meant to be a novella, the story of Holli, a bipolar pottery artist, and Isaac, a welder looking after his ailing father, grew to a full novel by necessity. I was fortunate enough to recently visit the story setting of Williamstown, West Virginia in order to add first-hand detail to Holli's hometown. Many thanks to Brenda Rainwater for suggesting the setting and assisting with details and info!
Bigger News: The first novella for the new and final EMK series has been contracted to Prairie Rose Publications to be part of a boxed set under the Fire Star Press imprint. More details to come.
In the meantime, there is a story line in development for the first novel of the Songwriters series. This book will begin during Nanowrimo 2016.
