New Writing Class

Good news: I’m teaching another writing class this spring, so if you missed the first one, you get a second chance.  The first class has been a great experience.  The students are talented, the discussions are lively, and it’s really been a good time.  Info for the new class is below.  In the event that you’re not in the Detroit area (or if you prefer working one-on-one,) check out my mentorship program

I have several new and exciting projects in the works, including book 3 of The Tracks: Shadow Train, which is slated for release this summer.  Stay tuned!
