Northampton House Press, Nuestras Voces, and Luna Stage Short Play Festival

This past spring and summer (yes, I know, not over yet) I’ve been hard at work on a few different projects, both scripts and prose, but there have been some happenings and updates to report. I’m delighted to share the news that Northampton House Press will be publishing my middle grade mystery novel WHO’S JU as an e-book in early 2015. I’ll post more details about the book soon, but in the mean time you can check out NHP (headed by publisher David Poyer) and its growing list of authors and publications here.

On the playwriting side of things, HIELO was selected as a runner-up in Repertorio Español’s 2013 MetLife Nuestras Voces Playwriting Competition and my one-minute play REASON was staged as part of Luna Stage's Second Annual Short Play Festival in May.

Happy Labor Day!
