The List


So, I’m still working on The List while I try to kick this WIP into submission. We are up to 40,000 words. Earlier in the week I went though a phase of absolutely falling in love with my WIP. Words flowed out for several hours. Sadly it didn’t last and we are back to kicking and screaming.

This happens. It’s no big deal. I’ll be in love again by the end of the week. I’m fickle like that.


What is the working title of your book?

The working title is Fracture.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

This is a bit complicated. Fracture is a ghost story with a twist. I’ve always wondered what exactly are ghosts? why do some people see them and some don’t? Why is it some people claim to have seen ghosts of the living or that they often appear in different forms? Some are more substantial, some can interact, some are like a movie being played over and over with apparently no awareness of the living world. 

I believe in the possibility we live in just one of an infinite number of dimensions. Some are alternate physical worlds where another us is living out a different life, and some spiritual. I also believe when our physical life ends that we pass over into one of the spiritual worlds. When people see a ghost or feel a presence, it’s the thinning of the veil separating these world. Some people are more sensitive to it than others.

It’s these questions and beliefs that formed the basis for the idea that later became Fracture.

Question for this week: What genre does your book fall under?

Fracture is paranormal romance YA. 


  1. Sounds fantatic!! I can't wait to read it!

  2. I have a dozen WIPs I've been working on for several years. The writer's block you describe always happens. Best of luck with this one.
