Two Nights of Live Reads!

This has been an intense week. I have done live reads at Dart Auditorium the past two nights. Last night, I read a condensed chapter from August Descent (the first book of The Cistercian Path series). And tonight I read the first part of Excelsior, my dystopian short fiction that won first prize in the LCC LAND Writing Competition last year, and which was recently published in the Washington Square Review Star Edition.

I have to say, the lineup for both of these events was absolutely stellar. There are a lot of up-and-coming authors in this community who creating some amazing work. Thanks so much to Melissa Ford-Lucken, Tara Brady, and Christopher Manning for putting tonight’s event together.

I’ve been leaning into public speaking events over the past year, so I’m certain you’ll have opportunities to hear my work at some point in the near future.

Let’s Get It Started

Valasandra comin’ at ya!

New author on the scene. New web site. New blog. Ooo…new novel, perhaps?

Yes, if you’re wondering – everything is new. I’m just getting started and getting my life into a different place, and I’m just excited to be here.

So hang on, I’m still setting up this site. Please bear with me as I pull it together and play around with all the new WordPress features and layout options.

New historical fiction / medieval fantasy series launching soon.

Stay tuned.
