I'm currently working on a series of steampunk stories with a female protagonist, Professor Ione D. She's bright, charming, and independent. As the stories take place around the beginning of the 20th Century, this sometimes places her at odds with the society around her. Ione is a complex character in a rapidly changing world. As a man, writing from a female perspective is challenging. My partner and collaborator, Arlys Holloway, has been an indispensable help in this regard. First up will be a story about Ione in her late teens, before she became a professor, as she explores the ancient Mayan ruins of Guatemala. We'll keep you posted on our progress toward publication. As this is steampunk, we are scheduling its release for Victoria Day, May 24th. Watch this space for news and updates on our various projects.
