Announcing my Next Novel: In the Lurch

No matter how many books I have out, I’m always super excited when I have an announcement, but I’ve been particularly looking forward to this one. This fall, on November 6th, 2018, I will be releasing my fifth book, In the Lurch.


Once a machine could do as much work as three men, the labor force was quickly replaced by much more efficient androids. As the number of robots grew, jobs disappeared, and everyone in the middle class found themselves obsolete. The wealthiest few prosper, but most of humanity was thrown into extreme poverty.

Leona lives a life of privilege, while Roemell never knows where his next meal will come from. A terrorist group—the lurch—starts targeting wealthy estates, burning them to the ground. Leona and Roemell find themselves thrown together, both having lost everything dear to them. Will they be able to stop the terrorists, or will all of humanity get left in the lurch?

I kicked around the idea of writing a book featuring robots for quite a while but didn’t want to derail the project I was already working on. When November came around, I planned to participate in NaNoWriMo 2017, but more than that, I wanted to win. Instead of continuing a half-written manuscript, I decided to start fresh. Since I was so excited about this story, I easily swept past the 50,000-word goal, finishing the first draft in early December.

In the Lurch will be the first installment of a new series, and the second one is well underway! If you haven’t already, sign up for my newsletter to get an announcement on release day and to be the first to hear about upcoming books!
