Griffin was one of my favorite characters in Blue Violet, which is part of … Read More More Griffin in Hyacinth

One of my favorite write-related memes says, “Be careful or you might end up in my book.” There’s a particular scene in one of my Svatura books that is an excellent, and ridiculous, example of this. A little history first… I wrote most of the Svatura series books while in the middle of my MBA program. It was a cohort style program, and I became really … Read More The Bubble Gum Scene
As we’ve been getting the Svatura series ready for release (coming soon, dates TBD!) I’ve gone through each book and done a round of my own edits/changes before sending to my editor.
