Natural Selection is Book 3 of my trilogy, Dawn of Humanity:
A historical thriller in the spirit of Jean Auel, Dawn of Humanity follows a band of early humans as they struggle to survive in a world where Nature is King, where they are prey not predators.
New tribe members, intimidating changes, and an unexpected end
Lucy’s tribe includes a mix of species–a Canis, a Homotherium, and different iterations of early man. More will join and some will die but that is the nature of prehistoric life, when survival depends on a combination of man’s developing intellect and inexhaustible will to live. Each species brings unique skills to the task they must complete. Based on true events.

Here’s what I did the past month:
- I almost skipped this monthly update because I got so little done. I try to edit five pages a day–ten would be nice. Too often, quitting time ended with many less, maybe better counted in paragraphs.
- Happily, I did complete a full book read-through (not the final one) and am beginning spot-editing, a step that always inspires my creativity.
