I’m interrupting my normal blog routine this week for a blog hop. Author, Lisa Tortorello invited me, and she’s amazing. I’ve read two of her books and consider them both top-notch. Check them out here.

I haven’t done a blog hop in quite a while – the reason I’ve chosen to participate today was because I’m switching genres. I’ve been bombarded with ideas (God 38138_1523709411040_1183755950_31531416_5075799_nlikes to keep me busy) for an older audience, and have found it to be a good fit. I’m grateful for all of you that have joined this blog and given me your feedback. I’d love to tell you about my new project while continuing our friendship in this new realm of writing.

(Before I begin a few interview questions, The Guardians ebook will be free on friday the 9th and Saturday the 10th! Grab it here.)

Blog Hop Fairies: What are you working on right now?

Me: A work of American fiction with a speculative bent. Is fantasy all that far off from reality? We know there are angels and those…uh hum, other guys. So here I go, on a YA fiction adventure. Hannah finds herself out of her college scholarship and her parents are out of work. They set out in their RV to regain their faith in the country that failed them. Along the way, Hannah finds out she’s more than a label-infatuated fashionista when nightmares become her reality. And of course, there’s Miguel…

BHF: How does is differ from other works in its genre?

Me: It’s not about vampires. =) Or dragons, or anything that’s been done and re-done. It deals as much with America’s struggles as it does with the spiritual battle we cannot see. Hannah sees it…

BHF: What is the hardest part about writing?

Me: Finding enough time. Getting ideas for crucial plot points in the midst of potty training.

BHF: What scares you?

Me: America’s shifting priorities.
Snakes. I hate them. Satan was a snake.

A big thanks to Cheryl Malandrinos for joining me last minute in this blog hop. She has written a children’s book called,  Little Shepherd.

In the hills outside Bethlehem, Obed guards his first flock of Little Shepherdsheep. When the angels appear to tell of the Savior’s birth, he is hesitant to follow the others to see the new King. When Obed returns to his sheep, he realizes it is a night of miracles.
