First – check out the blog! Writers hang out here, and show off snippets to some wonderful books.
I’ve been out quite a few weeks, trying to get some writing done. I plan to have 2 and maybe 3 new releases in the 2nd half of the year. This is from Outliers, which is a working title for the segue into another Wildblood series. While the first trilogy books aren’t stand-alones, I plan on making future ones exactly that. It’s a plan, we’ll see how it works out.

You know what happened in The Wildblood: Trilogy One, but what are the stories you don’t know? Outliers explores parts of The Wildblood world kept hidden, the stories yet to be told.
A generation after World War 3, children of the survivors struggle to overcome the all-too-human penchant to fight with each other. The only thing more dangerous than the people you don’t know, are the people you do know.
The first book explores Capt. Shannon Allen and Capt. Damon Green’s efforts to protect the secrets of The Vista and its Altered, the genetically engineer humans, while remaining loyal to the oaths they swore to protect their home. The Vista is no longer alone in the world, and the world is a complicated place.
This novel is a segue between The Wildblood: Trilogy One and the upcoming stand-alone novels.

“I met someone, both of his parents were Altered – he might be an ally and despite that, he scares me. It’s a fairly simple thing for me to sense other Altered, the ability has changed too, but that isn’t the part of this that’s bad. When I ‘see’ him like that, it’s different,” Shan remembered the encounters.
Green knew who she meant, even if he wasn’t supposed to; he also knew very few things scared her. “You can’t sense him.”
“It’s almost the opposite, like staring at the sun – he blots out everything else, and when I look away, the afterimage is still there, for a long time. It hurts.”
“You?” he said, alarmed.
“I get a blazing migraine, it fades, with the afterimage and I’ve only tread that ground twice. Honestly, Damon,” she dropped her voice to a whisper, “I’m afraid, if I tried any extended contact with him, it would kill me, or fry my brain – something painful, and permanent.”

Excuse the creative punctuation. First draft also, but at least it’s progress. The graphic leads to my website, FYI. You can find the trilogy there, in single books and a box set; the prequel novella, and sneak peeks at other upcoming projects. Thanks for stopping by.
