Work in Progress

I am writing a YA fantasy, Lupus Rex: Blood on the Moon. Seventeen-year-old Will discovers that he is unique in that he has two werewolf genes, Double Alpha, which makes him Lupus Rex. He is not sure he wants the title or the werewolf life, and someone is stalking him to prevent him from becoming Lupus Rex.

This story is a lot of fun to write. I have taken the Arthurian myths, added Lupines (werewolves), and transported them to the present.

I am writing a YA fantasy, Osiris Must Die. For the first time, I am using an outline to write a novel.  But I keep straying from the outline and modifying it. Has anyone else had this problem? Or is it a question of my outlining skills? I know that some writers would never write a novel without one, so I am trying hard to make this outline work. Feel free to comment, advise, or instruct us.

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on this day in 1892 (died 1973) Mr. High Fantasy wrote the Lord of the Rings and many other books. Where would Hollywood and New Zealand be without him? He was the first writer who made me appreciate fantasy. Before him, I regarded fantasy as comic book/B movie material.

I don’t have a photo of him, so here is a photo of his Number One Fan:

I don’t have the resources to give everyone Christmas gifts, but if you click on Bonus Stories, you can read two of my short stories. “Only A dream” is sci fi and “World Traveler” is fantasy with a dash of dark humor.  In any case, I hope the Holidays treats everyone well.
