Last year, I was shopping around an adult dark fantasy story, questioning where my writing career was going.
This year, I've sold a short story; I'm self-publishing a picture book. I'm leading a writing class at my son's elementary school. I'm drafting a middle grade novel and another picture book. I'm confident in my career choices.
It's been quite a year!
