Announcing: I have a publishing deal for my novel

I’m excited! For all of you who have followed my journey, I will soon be a published children’s book author. My middle grade novel, The Stupendous Adventures of Mighty Marty Hayes debuts in March 2018.

My publisher, HenschelHAUS Publishing has helped birth more than 550 books since 2002. With my traditional publishing contract, my series will be available in large chain bookstores, the HenschelHAUS Publishing website, independent bookstores, and via

The Adventures of Mighty Marty Hayes is the first in a planned three-part series. I invite you to follow my 12-year-old African-American superhero, Mighty Marty Hayes and his band of multi-cultural classmates. Their love of advanced science, particularly the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology, and spy gadgetry lead to a battle with international goons set on stealing the technology. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the action climaxing in our nation’s capital at the International Spy Museum.

Time. Space. Create.
That’s the value of artist and writer residencies.
