Blog Interview Questions:
1.Tell us about your current work in progress.
I have two works in progress.
The first, Kyle’s Story, provides a fictionalized account of our family’s journey with pediatric cancer. I wrote the first draft as an adult novel, but have recently found my true voice writing for the younger crowd! I am reworking this book through Kyle’s twelve-year-old eyes. More kids than you can imagine suffer from life altering diseases. My goal with this book is to open up that world in a way that helps kids understand.
My second project is a young adult science fiction novel called Awakening. Imagine if the genetic experiments begun in the concentration camps of Holocaust Germany never stopped. Only now, instead of creating a master race, the goal becomes infusing people with the ability to send their minds into other people’s bodies. Awakening explores how far the human mind can be pushed and poses the question—Should humans even be manipulating things better left to God?
2. What ignites your passion?
Fiction! I love my imaginary world and all of the characters in it. I can’t wait to go there every day and see what’s happening.
