The first rough draft of Honored is complete. I am currently editing my manuscript so that it will be ready for my agent by the start of the summer. At the same time, I am beginning the outline for my next book, Ballad Keepers. The premise came to me while watching a documentary on the Freedom Riders and there non-violent protests for desegregation. I have also been studying various Holacaust survivior’s accounts such as, Anne Frank: The Biography, The Hiding Place, and The Book Thief. My manuscript will combine many of the lessons and sacrifices made by both groups of people into something altogether new.
