My Latest Project

Starting a new project is always a little exhilarating, especially when it’s been a while since I’ve written new characters and a new world and finished the book (maybe I’m getting ahead of myself on that part).

I did NaNoWriMo last year, but that really felt like more of an experiment than it did a chance to actually write a novel. This go around feels different.

For the last few years, I’ve read a lot of stand alone novels, the “twisty stand-alones” are what I like to call them, because there is always some kind of twist at the end. Think Lisa Jewell, Shari Lapena, Megan Miranda, etc.

It’s been fun to let the imagination run a little wild and not worry about the previous books to take details from. It’s fun to have this little story in itself and not have to worry about a sequel.

I’m enjoying this process a lot. But in the spirit of old inkpop, where everyone shared projects while they were in progress, I thought it would be fun to share my current work in progress, The Girl in the Hay Bale. The title will almost certainly change but I started this project for Camp NaNo and needed something.

The Girl in the Hay Bale

Twenty years ago, Whitney Prescott survived the unthinkable. A wave of kidnappings took four girls from her hometown. She was the only one ever found alive.

Now, after years of avoiding the topic, she finds herself back in town for the twentieth anniversary, to remember the three girls who weren’t as lucky as she was.

Somethings change, but some don’t and when three little girls go missing within a matter of days, Whitney finds herself on the cusp of an investigation to determine why someone would take the girls, and why now?

No one knows what to expect next in this copycat better than Whitney, but years of buried trauma threaten to make Whitney more trouble than help, and investigators know there’s only a matter of time before someone dies, unless Whitney can help.
