Questions only experience will answer

When I first set out on this writing adventure in 2008, a question always lingered in the back of my mind.  I wonder if I will be able to write another story after this one?  I was always afraid I would keep writing essentially the same story with different characters.

Here we are in late 2014 and I finally have the answer.  For the past 6 years, I have thought of very little outside of the Malcolm Stone series.   I was starting to think perhaps I did only have one story in me.   A few days after finishing Dissonance, a new story popped up in my mind. I am not ready to delve into creating it yet, but I have written down the initial idea and the opening scene. Once I have Dissonance out to beta-readers (hopefully in two weeks or so), I will polish the first few chapters of Reverie to match the plot line. Then this new story will be able to take shape and grow. So perhaps by mid-January, for the first time since I started writing, I will be focusing on a story outside of Stone’s world.

Creativity is truly a moldable and ever-changing skill.




Editing update:

13 chapters edited

24 chapters remaining


I have been focusing on those other life issues too much lately, and tonight is dedicated solely to catching up and writing (editing).  I hope to have a few blog post essentially ready to post, so I can get back on track with blogging and marketing.



I am a writer currently working on her first series featuring Malcolm Stone. I also dabble in photography cooking and enjoying life. Synopsis of Dissonance (Book I in the series): Malcolm is youngest son of Preston Stone, the largest liquor importer on the east coast since the prohibition. His family’s affluence has afforded him the opportunity to follow his passion of being a pianist. He married a successful local artist Anabelle Connolly. They appeared to have the perfect life, but it had turned sour. After Anabelle’s death, the truth of their marriage can no longer be hidden. Years of Malcolm’s carefully constructed lies start unraveling at his feet. Will he be able to pick up the pieces of his shattered life? Dissonance explores and exposes a violent relationship, infidelity, substance abuse, depression, and lies.
