Growing Up, Coming Back, & Writing New Stories

To my loyal girls, women, and guy fans:

Yes. I have been gone awhile. I had cancer. I am better now and writing again after the three-year journey. This part of my story has made me stronger though. I have grown up. So I wanted to write some new stories about teens and young adult girls, strong girls and older women, women who know things and have also ‘grown up’!

Here’s what I have been thinking. Many girls feel they have something special inside themselves, but they can’t quite name what it is. So they try and try to unravel their specialness, their unique powers, their genius. Sometimes that’s not so easy. You need friends who can relate to what you are going through. You need helpers. You need fairy godmothers.

My new series is called Coded4Greatness and it’s full of characters who can relate to that feeling. Each character has his or her own special genius which I call “codes”. The first book will be done in the fall of 2017. It is called The Dually Codes. You will recognize some of the characters because you met a few them in the Fairy Godmother Academy books. The old ones have grown up and the new ones are a bit older too like Mo and Annabel. These books are considered Young Adult Fiction and have boy characters and magic. And there is a new place where all the magic in the real world happens. Maybe you know someplace in your world like this. It’s called The Third Place and it’s a great big warehouse with all kinds of maker stuff for fashion design, music, computer coding, science experiments and much much more.

Next month I’ll be offering a free first chapter of the Dually Codes if you sign up for the new OFFICIAL Fairy Godmother Academy website.

Thanks for hangin’ in there with me. You’ll be the first to find out how to find your own Genius Codes when I start releasing the Coded4Greatness series.
