I wrote my first book at age three in magenta crayon on green-bar paper ("The Creechur," a literary masterpiece which I intend to keep to myself) and finished my first novel at age thirteen. My first published novel was The Guardian (Thomas Nelson Press) under the name Jane Hamilton. Following that were Seven Archangels: Annihilation (Double-Edged Publishing) and The Boys Upstairs (MuseItUp). If you saw "A Rock For Christmas" on this weblog, that was me. I've also published short stories about Satan's employment problems, a law student who keeps looking for work even after he dies, what happens when the wrong angel gets assigned as a guardian (very, very wrong -- Nezeq's a demon) and what happens when God institutes self-esteem protocol on an eternal scale. (As it turned out, tossing sinners into Hell was seriously damaging their self-esteem.)
Oh, and did I mention I'm a wiseacre?
The Boys Upstairs is a novel about brothers revisiting the emotions keeping them apart in order to save three homeless children.
At my weblog, I document what happens when a distracted daydreamer and a gamer geek attempt to raise four children. I also blog for QueryTracker, where we guide writers toward improving their craft and through the process of querying.
