This month i had an amazing experience visiting Copenhagen and Stockholm. I love traveling, especially being able to absorb all the nuances of a new place. If you have the chance to go somewhere new, i recommend you do so. i’m definitely feeling inspired after seeing all these beautiful sights, so i’m excited to get back to work finishing up Without A Star among other things.

here are a few highlights from the trip:

Novella Submission

Today I submitted a novella called "The Sand Castle" to Tor Publishing. Fingers crossed! It tells of a young girl exploring a vast cave system near her town who stumbles upon a dead body and is framed for murder. She must escape the authorities and find a way to clear her name. If she can't, she may end up in prison and witness the destruction of her home away from home.

The Year Ahead

A lot of exciting things are in the works for this year. The next chapter book in the "Monster" series will be coming out later this year. The Space Monster script was sent to the very talented Jackie Hahn so she can bring the story to life with her incredible illustrations. (By the way, check out Jackie's store for lots of great things)

In addition to the Space Monster, I am hard at work finishing (finally!!!) the newest draft of Without A Star. This was the first major project I started as a writer and has gone through numerous changes. It began as an homage to my favorite book, The Little Prince, but has since become more than that. Once this draft is complete the editing can begin and we will maybe see a winter release date!

FALLEN has been on hiatus for some time, but I believe we are closer to getting it back up and running. Look out for more updates around summertime.

Finally, there are a few other smaller projects I'm working on. I have some short stories that fit into the same world as Without A Star that i hope to publish as a companion piece, as well as separately in various publications (if all goes well).

So that's what I've been up to. I look forward to everything this year will bring, and hope you all are excited as well.

Take care,


I will be in Cape May June 10th signing books at the Whale's Tale! In honor of World Oceans Day, there will also be a touch tank from the Cape May Nature Center. Cindy Bilbao will also be there signing her books, such as Sea Glass Searcher's Guide. It's gearing up to be a lot of fun - if you're in the area, stop on by!  


FALLEN issue #2 is out now. In this issue we see more of how the collapse is affecting the world. We are introduced to two new characters and see how they try and adapt to what has transpired.


The Jellyfish Monster has officially been released! This quirky chapter book follows a young boy as his day at the beach transforms into a fantastic adventure under the ocean. Featuring beautiful illustrations by Jackie Hahn, The Jellyfish Monster is sure to ignite the imagination of any child who reads it.
