I like working on several novel length stories at once. They keep turning up in my head, and working on several of them at the time keeps me (largely) from severe writer’s block. Here are some of the stories that I’m working on.
Chrome (working title)
James is born in working class Britain in the middle of the 19th century, but what threatens to turn into a typical Victorian novel about a boy full of hopes and dreams is abruptly cut short when James meets a charismatic gentleman who makes him a strange offer. The protagonist showed up in 2007, but it wasn’t until 2009 that I began working on his story.
A fantasy children’s story (middle grade) that I’m writing in my native language and hope to someday publish traditionally where I live.
A lighthearted urban fantasy novel about runes and blood magic.
The Secret of Stillwater
A MG/YA fantasy novel set in rural England. Two siblings spend the summer holidays with their uncle. Things seem fairly normal … Well, apart from the fact that he lives in an old mansion with a boy they’ve never met and that people in the village seem to be keeping something from them.
