Hello World!

Okay, so I’m a little freaked out starting my own blog. I’ve been blogging for LibraryGames.com now for months, but that’s library stuff and this…well, this is my life or a least snippets of it.  I’m finishing up the 3rd draft of ATWON’S CODE, a middle grade novel about dog fighting.  I read the first three chapters to fourth graders and the place went silent until the last page. I got a kick out of watching the faces of those kids as I peered over my papers, total emotion and right with me.  I love when a story has that kind of power and I really love it when MY story has that power. So only thirty-one more pages to go in rewrites–bring on the coffee and the chocolate!
