2019 was my most productive year in every way, most importantly in the number of new novels published. Some of the words written in 2019 will be published in 2020, but then the first two novels of 2019 were written the year before so it’s a case of swings and roundabouts.
This was the first time I’ve hit half a million words in a year and it all began with my commitment to write for a minimum of 10 minutes every day which I made in January 2017 and have never broken. This micro habit is the foundation of my author career.

Eight of the nine new novels published were written as part of my collaboration with Mike Kraus. I’ve learned so much from this partnership, in terms of how to write genre stories, how to be productive and how to market. The Long Night series has so far sold tens of thousands of copies and millions of pages read – and it’s still going strong.
In 2020, I plan to release more solo penned novels as well as continue writing with Mike as it has been a ton of fun!
