The First

Hello and Welcome!

I have just finished my first draft of my novel, so perhaps I am being a bit presumptive with this site. In truth, I created it two years ago when I was nearing the finish of a very different series — one that ended up in so many re-writes that I set it aside for a time.

My most recent book follows Solvi, a seventeen-year-old warrior trying to find her place amongst her people. A raid on her village sets her life on a path she could not have foreseen. Friends betray her, enemies surprise her, and along the way she discovers that all is not as she once thought.

Obviously, I am not near the publishing phase, but I plan to update this blog with each step, and hopefully one day that will include publishing news!

For more details around how I feel now that my first official first draft is complete, check out the post I wrote on my personal, random-life blog here.

When Annie isn't losing herself in someone else's words, she's daydreaming her own stories. She lives at her desk, sometimes venturing into the rest of her home to spend time with her husband. By day she works in an office, but nights and weekends belong to her craft. She loves good tequila, homemade spaghettios, and she will never say no to ice cream.
