The Kingdom of Ink

Okay... so it's been a while. After finishing my second semester of college, I've been spending every free second I have on my many, many projects. I finished writing and editing my YA fantasy novel Darkness Rise, started taking an online archaeology course, wrote a chapter book that I'm in the middle of illustrating, sent…

‘Dear Jackson’ Website
