“Where’s the next book?” An answer.

The last three years have been…interesting. I wrote one book – this time for adults. (Psychological thriller/horror set in Siberia.) It didn’t sell. I rewrote it to be YA…with a boy as main character. My agent suggested it would be better with a girl. I rewrote it again with a girl main character. We tried to sell it…and failed.

I wrote a full-length film with a friend – a rom com. It was our first screenplay, so we knew it was basically just practice, and that’s what it turned out to be. A really fun idea, but not terribly well executed.

I wrote a short film called “Kewpid and Psych-ee” for an upcoming TV series “WHATEVER AFTER” which was selected for and screened at the Marseille Web Fest (among others).

I wrote a middle-grade comedy genie book, which I sent to my agent last year, and which she loved but says needs a bit more work. (She’s right.)

Then I ghost-wrote a upper middle-grade book, which I just finished before Christmas.

In between time, to pay the rent, I translated a book from French to English, taught teen writing workshops in Paris, and did all sorts of other little projects for TV and books, finally taking a 3-day per week job writing TV commercials in English for a big ad agency located a block fromĀ  my house. I chose it so I could come home to walk Obi, fix the kids lunch on Wednesdays (1/2 day school in France), and take the occasional lunchtime nap.

I’m telling you all of this to answer your question: Where’s the next book? The answer: it’s coming! I’m not sure what form it will take, but being a writer is not an easy job when you are supporting a family smack dab in the center of Paris. The important thing is that I am still writing. And there is definitely much more to come.
