Sometimes, I post story snippets and outtakes on my blog for your general enjoyment. This page gathers them all together in one happy little home. Besides the posts below, I have samples of my published works on Wattpad, which are able to be downloaded through the Wattpad app.
This past summer, I also posted snippets of four unfinished stories for my readers to vote on which I would finish first. You can read the portions I shared below, and vote on what stories you liked best by filling out this survey. (Don’t worry, it has the option to be totally anonymous.) I’ll keep what I post online until I publish the winning manuscript.
So, read them now while the getting’s good. 😉
