Plans continue to rewrite and retool my ebooks at Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing. I published my first book there in January 2013. Although my main character was a boy named Lenny Stevens, it introduced Vree Erickson and started the ball rolling for her to take center stage in many of the stories that followed.

Yes. Another year. As usual, I entered my WordPress blog after a long hiatus and spent the whole day redesigning my blog instead of writing.
