2020 will be a year of transition for me as an author: from being a hobbyist short-story writer to becoming a novelist. I’ll be restructuring my daily schedule to make writing more of a part-time job, not just a hobby. I’ve already started work on the first of three novels I plan to write in 2020 and 2021. The first novel is a thriller/mystery about a sheriff in the North Georgia Mountains who suspects that a string of murders might be related to a crime he committed himself 15 years earlier. He struggles to find a serial killer while keeping his own secret hidden from his husband and the divided community that elected him sheriff.
That novel will be my focus in the year ahead, but I’ll also be doing more author readings and going, as usual, to my favorite conventions, Monsterama and DragonCon. I’ve already been approved as an Attending Professional for DragonCon in 2020.
