Coming to a bookstore near you!

Mermaids... Unicorns... Paris... Catholic Fantasy... My first published novel...

"Wait, what? I thought you were writing about time travel!"

I am! But I've also been invited to be the third author in a Catholic YA Fantasy series that Chesterton Press is putting out next year titled "The Ruah Chronicles". My friends Regina Doman and Matthew Bowman will be writing the first book. My book is slotted to be the third, and Matt will be co-authoring it with me (his name will be first on all the books so that they are grouped together in the bookstore).

Matt and I got most of the first act outline sketched out today and had a blast doing so. Hopefully Regina'll approve it! I've been to Paris so I know the layout and feel of the city, but I don't speak French. However, Matt's mom is fluent so we were able to go to her for help with some linguistic stuff.

I'm really excited because this will be my first published work, and I'm thrilled that it will be by Chesterton Press. Also, it'll take place in Paris and involve a unicorn, nuns, and some hostile mermaids. Sound like fun? I think so! We don't have any set release dates yet, but my book is slotted to be the third book released (although it will take place parallel to book one, involving a minor character from that story).
