Hello world! I’ve written a great upper MG book entitled THE FAMILY VYGIL. Do you like excitement and danger and humor and intrigue and a twist on legendary stories? Well if you do, then you’re in luck because my book now exists and it will fulfill all your literary needs. Well maybe not all of them, but most of them. Can you relate with being an outsider? Can you relate to wanting to find out what really makes your parents so strange? Do you secretly believe you’re a part of something much larger than you know? Want to meet a bit of a smart aleck, but lovable rapscallion named Tertulius? Sure you do, we all do. With THE FAMILY VYGIL, you can enjoy a journey typical thirteen-year-old Jonathan takes where he discovers that his parents are into something much more mysterious than animals.
This blog will serve as my journey from an undiscovered, struggling, crazy MG writer to hopefully a successfully-published, pretty darn good author. Feel free to cheer me on, cheer me up and commiserate if you’re also traveling down the sometimes lonesome path of being a writer. If I find out any tricks of the trade or you have any to share, I’d love to make this a medium for a community of like-minded individuals. Most anything is on-topic, so feel free to ask.
