My Projects


 Aloha Spirit

Inspired by the life of Carmen Rodrigues, this novel follows a young woman through defining moments in her life. Born in territorial Hawaii, her mother passes away when she is young, and her father leaves her to find work on the mainland. Worked hard by her adopted Hawaiian family, Carmen marries at 16 and has three children by age 22. Then her husband begins to abuse her. Rising above the hardship, she practices aloha spirit her entire life.

*2018–Working on a major revision of the novel. 

This is a temporary placeholder since I do not have a cover yet for this book.

Xavier’s Desk Monster 

is a picture book for 7-9 year olds.  It tells the story of a student with a really really messy desk.  I know you can probably figure out the author’s message on that one without reading it, but I promise it will be a fun read anyway!*2012–A student drew some fabulous illustrations for the first draft! Love them!

*2013–I revised the story and need new pictures, but the student who did the originals is too busy with school now.

*2014–On hold for now unless I happen to run across an illustrator.

*2017–An author friend suggested I turn this into a graphic novel. That is a promising idea

A Visitor to Sandahl

is a compendium of short stories set in the fantasy world of Methanasia made popular in the Cable Hornman Tales of a Bard series. Various writers were challenged to develop a short story to fit in or around the town of Sandahl. My short story, included in this book, is called “Road to Sandahl.” This small mountain valley realm is at the crossroads of the continent, geographic- ally astride the intersection of three of the major mountain ranges and politically in between three separate empires.  Compiled by C. Lee Brown A Visitor to Sandahl NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON.COM!

The second volume of stories was published early in 2014, called Return to Sandahl. It includes my story “Roark’s Raiders.”  Compiled by C. Lee Brown Return to Sandahl NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON.COM!
