My novel in progress

As of March, 2019, The Doubloon became the working title of my historical novel in progress. Set in the Carolinas in the 1760s, it is the story of a widow who is accused of killing her husband. She simultaneously works to prove her innocence, looks for a new husband, and struggles with inheriting a slave after being against slavery all her life.

I finished the first rough draft on May 1, 2019.

It’s July 2019 now. I continue to tweak my manuscript. I’m working my way through it scene-by-scene and doing a more detailed scene outline than I did before writing the book. Since this is my first novel, I think it will be beneficial for me to get my completed scene outline critiqued by a professional. That’s what I’m working toward this summer.

Stay tuned!
