My first self published work will be out on Kindle before Thanksgiving.
Chimmekin Crossing the Delaware: A Christmas Historical Fantasy
"Folklore and History intermix to tell an amazing tale. A tale of George Washington's forces in the historic battle in Trenton on Christmas Day in 1776. Unseen and magical forces are not recorded in our history books, but are now exposed in this new and exciting look at the crossing of the Delaware. Chimmeken, a young German American gnome presided over a different kind of assembly ."

My current work in progress is another steampunk short, which I am also submitting to Xchyler Publishing. I am also searching for a home for my YA Murder mystery and will be releasing a historical MG short story for Christmas.
My day job is teaching English Composition at IvyTech Community College in Valparaiso, Indiana.
My favorite story is this one to be published in February. I took my favorite O. Henry story "A Ransom for Red Chief" and steampunked it up! It is light and fun, but definitely Steampunk!. I took the same characters from that short (Effie and Clayton) and am currently writing a Peter Pan Prequel with some character reversals.
