I Won NaNoWriMo/Finished My 36th Novel!


If you haven't seen it on social media...

The first draft of my YA mystery novel is done for #NaNoWriMo!

My 36th novel is complete. THE LOST PHARAOH, my YA mystery set in Egypt, is done. Yessss!

Current word count: 99k.

It’ll need to be edited and cut down, but it’s all there.

Can't wait to send this one off to my agent, too. The last time we spoke, I sent her four new novels and 10 picture books. I can't help being prolific -- I just love writing.

Now to celebrate and plot out my next novel!



Thanks for reading,
