These are my drafts of Seeking the Center, teetering high atop my bookshelf. The spiral notebooks are where I took notes (when I wasn't using the computer) and worked out ideas. They date back to 2010. The manuscripts pictured here only date back to about 2013. Earlier fragments have ended up in the recycling bin or hidden among endless directories of disorganized computer files.

Now the manuscript has been finalized, published, and released. For better or for worse, it's complete. The characters who have been a part of my life for six or seven years, whose thoughts and feelings became as real as my own, are no longer my daily companions, and I truly miss them. I only hope that you will enjoy them as much as I have!
