LEAVING EDEN




Most of my blog followers know me as a YA Contemporary Writer, and I am.  I love all the angst, and drama, and the swing of emotions that plague the teenage years.  I write YA contemporary with a passion, fueled my my own memories and a deep need to pour my crazy emotional swings onto paper.

What I also love is a good horror! So, although I ride solo when it comes to all things contemporary, I partner with the talented (and a tad bit twisted) Lindsay Currie when it comes to writing my YA Horror.  I promised to share some quotes from our joint project. LEAVING EDEN, as soon as revisions were done.  Well the revisions are done and the teasers are now LIVE on our joint website www.yawriters.com! Hop on by and take a peek -- with the lights on, of course:)

    1. I hear you, I too love hearing about yours and Christy's writing adventurers. Writing can be a lonely process. Adding a co-author, one that fits so well with your writing style, can make it all the more fun. Not to mention productive!
