Hanna's Ascent A Story of Trauma, Transformation, and Triumph.
Coming June 2023
Welcome to my writing room
My first novel, Hanna's Ascent, has found a publisher! It's scheduled for release in June 2023, from Bedazzled Ink (www.bedazzledink.com). As of March it also has a new name! (There was a possible conflict with another book, but the new name has more symbolic depth and intensity; I'm very pleased.) The excitement level is going up rapidly as we approach the release date. There is a lot of work to be done between now and then, but this story is about to enter a new chapter (horrible cliche, I know; I’ll think of something better soon!). The climbing metaphor from the novel applies equally well to the processes of writing and publishing - so many seemingly insuperable barriers, with solutions just out of sight around a corner.
A little about me: I grew up in southwest Colorado, on a ranch where our nearest neighbors were an elderly couple three miles away; after 22 miles of often impassible dirt road came an actual town of 500 people. Mail came twice a week. Electricity came when I was ten.
