I write Young Adult Contemporary novels, and I’ve been doing it for about… Oh goodness, it’s going on five years now since I finished my first manuscript. I’ve written over a dozen novels but published four (one of which I’ve since taken out of print). I’m a perfectionist at heart, and as I’ve refined my writing abilities I’ve found it hard to stand by novels that weren’t as great as I expected them to be. So the bad news is that if you like my work it will probably take me longer than most indie authors to publish a new book, but the good news is that you can be assured I’m not releasing novels just to keep my name relevant.
My stories may not always be perfect, and I can’t promise that you will always love them; all I can say is that my aim is to write the kind of novels that I can still stand behind years later. To that end, I’ll give this guarantee: if you purchase one of my novels and don’t enjoy it (whether you wind up reading it a day later or a year later), let me know and I’ll be happy to send you a free copy of the next novel I write. Where possible, I’ll also do everything in my power to get you a refund.
