Title of your AJOW story: Broken Wing

Post a brief synopsis of your AJOW story: 

A young couple travels across the country to visit relatives. Along they way they pickup an unexpected passenger burdened an old family secret.

What inspired you to write this story? 

My obsession with the impact our encounters with strangers have on the course of the universe and how those ripples effect our lives for generations

How long have you been writing? 

More importantly, I’ve been creating stories since before I could put them down on paper.

What genre do you usually write in and why? 

This is one people keep telling me I need to figure out. I get that writing in one genre is easier to market, but so far I’ve jumped from thriller to new adult to horror, to sports fiction, to general fiction, to sci-fi, to western, to… I think if I could get myself to pick just one it would be mystery…or thriller…or suspense…or…

What else are you working on writing at the moment?

 A suspense/thriller novel, In The Watershed about a group of plane crash survivors stuck in a blizzard in the Rocky mountains…and one of them is a killer. A short story collection tied loosely together by blood relations, coincidence, greed, and an old Turkish rug. A young adult fantasy series that begins in a black and white world and our main characters aim to learn the secret power held in colors.

What advice do you have to give to new writers?

 Have faith in what you’re doing and don’t let yourself get bogged down by rules and other obstacles. 

How can people discover more about you and your work?
