Top Secret Project
I’m working on a book that I’m technically not allowed to talk about. The author reached out to me requesting first draft revision suggestions, edits and ghostwritten copy. Not to be dramatic, but this is the most exciting project I’ve ever worked on, and I can’t wait to share it with you in a few months–if not sooner!
Achievement Center of Texas – Unpublished
I wrote a 25,000-word collection of fiction stories based on the lives of the students at Achievement Center of Texas (ACT), a center for children and adults with special needs.
I interviewed the teachers, parents and students involved with the center to get our students’ best stories. While I loved writing the book, working at a nonprofit wasn’t the right fit for me, so I left ACT. At that point, publication of the book was no longer pursued.
Here’s a story from the book that I’m especially proud of called Halfway Home.
Trailer Trash: A Collection of Poems
When I’m not writing for my clients, I write for myself. I’m writing a collection of poems called Trailer Trash, about growing up in poverty and how that impacted my relationship with my mom. I was invited to perform a few poems at the April 2019 LitNight event, and I chose to read a few from this collection. I’m hoping to have it finished in time to submit to a few contests this winter.
