Humbled and Honored

A debut novel emerges on shaky ground, no matter who the author. It’s just fact. It’s an unknown that can be exhilarating, but stressful. Like every other author on the planet, I was optimistic about mine when it debuted in 2015, but honestly had no idea how it would be received. As of this writing, Shadow of the Hawk, has soared beyond my wildest dreams, and I am so grateful.
