I’m working on many projects at once. I’ve got two series started.
This is book one but I just started writing book 2 of 7. I love creating my own creatures and fantasy worlds. I also started creating illustrations for my story and a map which is a lot of fun. And for funsies made spinoff books including a monster guidebook and a compendium of artifacts, people, legends, and beasts.
After a frightening incident leaves her family shaken, Hope Martinez promises her mother to never look at a mirror again.
Three years later, Hope stands between two worlds - the world of her mother, a contrived and constricted set of rules ignoring their family’s Hispanic heritage and abolishing all things reflective from the home, and the world of her abuelita, which is said to contain a mysterious power that members of the family are fated to discover.
When high school bullying and peer pressure start pushing Hope’s limits, she finds no other choice but to gain normalcy and break her mother’s promise. She soon discovers a hidden magical world beyond her reflection, one filled with strange beasts, enchanted cities, and flying walnuts. Why would such a wonderful place be kept from her? The reason - Hope’s family has a terrible destiny waiting to be unleashed.

Then I have my comedy murder mystery series involving a nun who loves to dig up trouble. She is a blast of a character to write about. Just finished book one and starting on book 2.
Merry Sister Mary is the world’s most happy-go-lucky nun, and where the nuns are concerned, possibly the worst. She has none of the qualities reserved for a traditional lady of the cloth: a fear of water, an odd relationship with an umbrella, and no talent in teaching or nursing, yet Sister Mary believes she has a special God given power, laughter. Such a belief has led her to be kicked out of her convent in Chicago for accidentally flashing a group of churchgoers and deemed in desperate need of reform. She is sent on a bus to a stricter convent in New Orleans, Louisiana, but in a drama fueled twist, God has different plans for the joyous nun. She is to solve a murder.

Lastly I have my young reader scifi adventure book. I modeled it off of James and the Giant Peach and a Wrinkle in Time with an Aladdin twist.
Eddie Eversby is an orphan after her astronaut parents are killed during a failed launch to space. Now living with her cruel aunts who enjoy making her do pointless chores and serve them like a maid, Eddie finds her greatest joy to be with her friends making claymation videos. She thinks her life will be forever miserable until a small meteor crashes into her room.
The glowing rock is the heart of a star and the essence of a wish. Coveted by the creatures of the universe, wishes are good money on the black market. A strange man appears attempting to bargain for Eddie’s wish in exchange for an intergalactic adventure. As the two discover the beauty of the cosmos, an evil djinn sets his sights on Eddie. She learns that when the greatest star chooses a young girl from Earth to have the most powerful wish, the whole universe is bound to take notice.
