Ready. Set. Write.

It’s been months in the making and it’s finally here. It’s an event to bring awareness and support to literacy. I’m talking about the Muskoka Novel Marathon that I will be participating in throughout this upcoming weekend. A chance to smooze with other writers, and be with my characters for three full days. It’s all about writers supporting readers, and I feel privileged to be a part of this wonderful fundraiser.

  As I write this post, I still have to put the finishing touches on my story outline. I plan to write a novella (though it may transmute into a full blown novel) about how my time travel series originated. Call it a prequel. Call it the prelude. Or call it a preface. The story is meant to fill in background information about the Last Timekeepers series. This book is more fantasy because I’m taking my readers to Atlantis – one hundred years before the final destruction. Talk about using that imagination of mine! It’s about Lilith – one of my characters from the Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis – and her roots as the guardian of the seventh Arch of Atlantis. At the time of the story, Lilith is an adolescent and not the wise magus I created in the Last Timekeeper books. It’s going to be interesting to see how Lilith and my other characters develop during the course of the weekend!
I would like to thank those of you who have supported me in this endeavor, as so far I’ve raised a total of $405 for literacy. Woo hoo! By the way, it’s not too late to sponsor a participating author. Please go to to learn how you can help support a writer and empower a community.

Good luck to my fellow writers! Let the stories begin!
