Is Daughter of the Burning City a stand-alone? Will you write any sequels?
There are not planned sequels to Daughter of the Burning City at this time. I cannot imagine putting my poor characters through much else! However, I have plans for many more future books, even though they aren’t set in the Gomorrah Festival.
Is Daughter of the Burning City an LGBTQIAP+ novel?
The love interest in the novel is on the asexual spectrum–demiromantic/asexual, and the main character, Sorina, is bisexual. The novel is in no way a romance, as murder and fantasy definitely take center stage, but yes, I would call it an LGBTQIAP+ read.
Is Ace of Shades part of a series?
Yes, Ace of Shades is the first installment in The Shadow Game trilogy.
Do you have any advice for young writers
Read as many books about the craft of writing as possible. Fiction gives you inspiration, but craft books provide lots of technical knowledge you might not learn strictly from reading.
