About the WIP

After her boyfriend’s wife commits suicide, Mia Ward’s own life is canceled. Clients abandon her. Friends ghost her. The man she loved pins all of the blame on her. Moving across the country, she takes up residence in the historic and decaying Hotel Chavez. Once a home to influential artists, musicians, and writers, Mia hopes to find inspiration and the will to build a new life from scratch.

The working title of this work-in-progress is Cold Sunset. It’s envisioned as a Gothic novel in a modern setting. Writing began in December 2019, with a goal of completing the first draft by the end of February 2020. Subscribe below as I blog about my novel-writing journey.
