And so it begins...

Updated: Jul 16, 2020

After a decade or more of sitting on the shelf, my first book is near the point of submission. The current working title is A Tower of Pearl and White. It's the first in a series of books focusing on the travails and travels of a young man named Frankie Falawell, who is taken from his home, and thrust into a fantasy world under threat.

Adapted from my original manuscript, written in the early 2000s, I've broken apart the original story from a long, epic trilogy to a series of smaller books. My target audience is the Young Adult audience, though it is very accessible for young teens through adults.

The manuscript of the first book has been edited, and the feedback thus far has been very, very positive. At present, the unedited manuscript is being sent to beta readers before the edits are applied.

As I type, I'm working on the followup book, stitching together all the various chapters I've written for it thus far. Working on Chapter 19 at present.
