Hi and thanks for visiting my web site. As you can see this site is for my historical readers but there is a link to my alter ego, Colby Hodge and her books provided.
I am thrilled to announce that I am now writing westerns exclusively for Berkley. I'm starting a brand new series called Angels End about a small town in the mountains of Colorado. The first book, Godsend, will be released in early 2012. Its a story about Cade Gentry, a man who poses as a preacher to escape his sordid past, and the outlaw who wants him dead. Leah Findley is a widow who finds him injured in a blizzard and nurses him back to health. Please sign up for my mailing list for the announcement of the release date and the latest news on Angels End.
And in other news, I will be writing a steampunk/dystopian series for St. Martins/Griffin. The first book is titled Ashes and is about a young woman, Wren MacAvoy, who is a coal miner for a domed city after Haley's Comet comes too close to the earth in the mid-1800s. 200 years after the comet, Wren becomes the unwitting catalyst that destroys the society of the dome and must venture out into the real world. I am very excited about this series. I will be writing it under the pen name Kassy Tayler who will be getting her own web site soon. Ashes will be released in early 2012.
Please visit my journal for current updates on my life as a writer. I have to write five books in 19 months and prepare for my son's wedding so life will be hectic and I will try to post when I can.
