I am VERY excited to announce that my novel, Keeper of Secrets, is going to be published by Firefly Press in September 2021. It's got SNOW in it (hooray!), a mystery, a courageous girl risking everything for an animal in danger, and a wintry, Christmassy ending. Here's the gorgeous cover by talented artist Becky Thorns:
Getting a novel published has always been my dream. Perhaps yours is similar, or it could be something completely different. But things don't always happen easily. I have been working towards this goal for many years and have faced a lot of setbacks along the way. Sometimes I thought it would never happen - that my work wasn't good enough, that I didn't have the talent, that things just wouldn't go my way. But when I signed with my agent, the first thing I saw when I came out of her office was this word: PERSEVERE.
It means, to keep going, keep trying, even when things are difficult. And even if they don't work out as you expected, you have trained yourself to be stronger for the next challenge.
