I ended up with a 50,000 word novel entitled, "The Selkie Prince," which is a work of children's fiction involving identical twins from California who study abroad at Oxford and get transported to a magical world quite a bit like the Orkney islands North of the Scottish coast. There are selkies, hogboons, trows, talking otters, an evil witch, and an epic battle of good versus evil. This will be the 3rd book I've completed, and the 4th I've attempted. Every time I get just a little bit better. I am looking forward to 2014 and the new writing challenges and improvements I will make.
I am going to spend the next 6 months revising the book and re-reading some of my favorite children's fiction. I hope to begin queries around June of 2014.
