    Have some exciting news that I can't really share TOO publicly, so I'll just give the abbreviated version: I sold my novel to a major publisher, and am currently working on edits. I wrote this novel 5 or 6 years ago, and my agent had a tough time selling it, so I shelved it. That being said, it's very challenging to go back to an old manuscript and edit it. There's been a lot of cringing.

    I can finally share details!

    My novel, THE STRANGER FROM BERLIN, will be published (tentatively) August 2021 from Simon & Schuster UK!!!

    Historical fiction set in Nebraska during WW2. Super, super excited to share it with the world!

    It's about a German refugee from Berlin who escapes Nazi Germany and ends up in a small Nebraska town.
