Announcing The Life and Death of Terry Dodd + Giveaway

Today I have an exciting tid-bit of news!
I'm so very pleased to officially announce the release of my novelette, The Life and Death of Terry Dodd. This story began as a small scene in my daydreams two summers ago and, though it didn't get a whole lot bigger, it has taught me so much. Not only through writing it, but in editing it and changing it. And believe me, this was one story I was loathe to change! Just ask my editor.

About The Life and Death of Terry Dodd
Joann Shea is a fourteen-year-old girl fascinated by the man who lives next door. Though it's a harmless fascination she can't really explain, no one seems to understand, let alone Joann herself. But there's something about him that isn't black and white, cut and dry. When there's a terrible accident and Joann must defend her family against her domineering Uncle Barry, the drunk next door proves to be more than he seems, and Joann learns an extraordinary truth about human beings and the worlds they carry inside. Read the official book description HERE.
