"See? Girls can't resist me." LUNAV's main character Sadie, by the wonderfully talented solaert over on tumblr. Shows Sadie, in a yellow shirt and green trousers, casually hovering with nighttime blue, milky-way like wings. She is holding up a human peace sign with one of her hands. She's grinning broadly with her hair, shaved on one side, is swept in a delightfully messy, orange wave that falls onto her forehead.

LUNAV 

Welcome to the world of my debut novel, LUNAV, set for release with NineStar Press in March 2018. 

On this site, you'll be able to leap into the pages of my debut novel, Lunav-- into a world of dragon eggs that grow on trees, a world where genderqueer rabbits and boyish half-faeries can be best friends; a world where plague and politics threaten a half-faerie teenager's growing, guilt-ridden desire for the human girl sent to eradicate Dreamers like her.

Weekly Writing Tips Just For You

When I first taught first-year composition at CUNY Queens College, every week we did a little bit of "Reading About Writing." And since I'm a teacher through and through, I wanted a space to reflect that here. Want weekly writing tips and a bunch of other writing goodies? Head over to the blog, and feel free to let me know through comments what books I should review, what writing tips you want me to shell out, and what writing tips of your own you'd like to share!

Take a Class with Me

Soon, you'll be able to sign up for webinars with me on any and all aspects of writing: staying in character with fan fiction, plot development, busting through writers' block, on and on. Feel free to let me know what kinds of things you want to learn about writing: as you can read more about here, teaching writing is my day job!

Let me Feature Your Art

Do you write fan fiction? Do you create fan videos? Fan art? Want me to feature some on my site (scroll up! I already am!)? Hit me up, and you might just get your own feature. Because remember -- fan creations are no less real, no less important, than "official", traditionally published work!
