I’ve never made an audiobook before! I’ve had a lot of readers ask me about an audiobook for The Neverland Wars, so I was getting ready to put together a presentation and do some market research to convince my publisher to invest in one, when out of the blue… My publisher asked if I wanted… Continue reading Can You Hear Me Now?

Hello, hello! I’m typing this with sticky BBQ sauced fingers which means only one thing… I’m back in Washington, at Third Place Commons, working on my writing, and eating Burney Brother’s pulled pork, as I have for some eight years now.
