#PitMad is upon us, tomorrow, 5th of December. For those not chasing a Literary Agent or a Publisher, #PitMad is a pitch party/event on Twitter, where aspiring authors with finished manuscripts give a 280 or less character pitch, hoping to get an industry professional to ‘like’ the tweet. This contest runs quarterly, and was designed and run by Brenda Drake.

If you happen to find yourself on twitter tomorrow between 8am-8pm EST, and you see a pitch that you are interested in, or would like to read a whole book about DO NOT ‘LIKE’ it; instead, retweet it. That’s the best way to show support for any aspiring writer. ‘LIKE’  is for industry professionals to tell the writer that they want to see more about the pitch.

any further information can be found Here.

Good Luck to all participants. I will be pitching Eighteen Fools, so see you there.


Eighteen Fools

ElyaThe Edits are complete, now it is time to send the story into the world. This book was a blast to write, taking a Point of View from a dragon, allowed me the opportunity to do some light-hearted writing.

I am not sure what the next step will be for Frackus or Elya, but its been a fun trip so far.

‘Back Cover’ Summary:

Elya dreams of escaping her life of forced servitude to Duke Cannith Hawthorne of Arborwick. Sacrificed by her village over a decade prior, she has grown-up beside her tormentor. Now as she reaches adulthood, she discovers she’s carrying Cannith’s child. If she can’t execute her plan soon, she’ll be trapped with Cannith for all eternity.

Frackus believes he’s the last dragon. All the pressure of being the sole representative of a species weighs down on him. Frackus is forced to flee his cave and head to Arborwick. With winter approaching he has to gather enough food to hibernate away long enough for dragon kind to reach another spring.


2019: A new chapter

Hello everyone! This site is currently under renovation.

My personal life has changed tremendously this year, and along with the new changes, a new project. I have taken down all of the previous posts from Fatal Introduction and have started to focus on a new, exciting book. It has a working title of “18 Fools”. I am thrilled to share with you all a fantasy novel about overcoming adversity… seasoned with a little humor. Sounds factious, right?

I now call The Heart of Appalachia my home. These beautiful mountains in Washington County Virginia couldn’t be a better place to find inspiration and focus.

Thank you for your continued support.
