Best of 2021!

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it. A few days ago I received an amazing gift: Mariner’s Wake made it on the Kirkus Reviews 100 Best Indie Books of 2021 list! This selection means a great deal to me and I’m still in a bit of disbelief. Out of the thousands of indie titles released this year, mine made the list.

I’ve been writing for years. It can be difficult to find the time to put words on the page in between career and other life responsibilities, but I do it because I love it. Reading has always been a big part of my life and the idea of being a part of that creative cycle and bringing the joy of story to others lights a fire inside me. In that sense, it’s always worth the effort. However, I’d be lying if I said that this journey of writing, re-writing, and improving my craft has always been easy or encouraging. There is so much content out there it’s hard to stand out or get noticed. So, when one of the most respected editiorial review publications in the country recognizes my work, I can’t help but get excited about it.

If you’d like a review copy of Mariner’s Wake, there are some spots left on my BookSirens listing. Or if you’re a reviewer in the U.S. and you’d like a physical copy, send me an email and I’ll see what I can do.
