I finally get to share this beautiful cover by Rebecca Barney! I love how obviously science fiction it is, I love how middle-grade friendly and inviting it is, and I was amazed at how much of the story it managed to capture in this one image. When I saw it, my book felt like a real novel instead of a Google Docs on my computer.
Surviving in space is never simple.
Thirteen-year-old Ana lives on The Platinum Phoenix, a run-down mining colony carved out of a massive asteroid. When the mining robots break, panic follows. Without them, the colony can't extract the ice they depend on for water. The mine shafts were designed for slender robots—adults can't fit through them to make repairs by hand. But Ana can.
To save her colony and her family, Ana suits up and heads deep into the dangerous vacuum of the mines, hoping to make the repairs that will keep everyone she loves alive.

Over at Flash Fiction Online, you can read my short story "Seafoam & Cinders". Is this a fairytale mashup? Yes, yes it is.
I may or may not have mentioned that I now have an Instagram account, but one of the interesting things about IG means that all posts need a visual element. I guess I could do it another way, but I enjoy tinkering around with graphic design and making simple little covers for my short stories when I post over there. It's fun to try to capture the mood/vibe of a story in visual form. Here's my little cover for "Seafoam & Cinders":

Two exciting points of news!
THE CORAL PALACE, the sequel to THE REDWOOD PALACE, is now available for preorder. Also, I can quite happily say that the third and final book is turned into my editor.
I've had some people ask how to be supportive of the series. One of the best things you can do to help the books reach more people is to simply leave a short review on Amazon.
Plum would love to work as Lady Sulat’s chef and spend her days crafting healing foods, but it isn’t safe for her to stay in the capital. She knows far too many of the king’s secrets. Lady Sulat proposes sending Plum away on a covert mission.
Learn all about poisons. Learn how to defend against them. Head into dangerous territory.
Unfortunately, Plum has to rely on her sister for support...the sister who isn’t even the tiniest bit sorry for nearly getting Plum executed. Her poisons teacher is an old enemy. And, given the secretive nature of what she’s doing, Plum can’t even openly talk to Bane about it.
But Plum is going to give it her all. After what she’s seen of war, she’s willing to take any risk and pay any price to secure peace for Rowak.
