Hello world! My Next Novel

Okay I am going to try this blogging and see if I can get into it.  I am going to blog about the headaches and joys of writing my second novel…..we shall see what I can learn by writing about my process.

Voila! My main character is born!

Meet Lukas.  A 30 year old single man with an 8 year old daughter.  She was born today too!  Lukas celebrated his birthday alone and seems to be pretty scared of the dark still…
