For someone who claims to never leave the house, there are a couple of opportunities to see me this month, if you are so inclined:
This Wednesday, May 14, I’m thrilled to be taking part in the LAPL Teen Author Reading Series with the lovely Carrie Arcos at the Exposition Park branch at 4 p.m.!
And I’m incredibly excited that I’ll be at Mrs. Dalloway’s in Berkeley on Saturday, May 31, in conversation with my friend Stephanie Kuehn! Steph is my critique partner, one of my favorite writers, and author of the gorgeous Charm & Strange, as well as the thrilling upcoming novel Complicit, both of which I absolutely love. We’ll be talking about writing dark YA, diversity in publishing, and much more, so if you’re in the Bay Area, I hope you’ll join us!
Finally, I am so touched by this beautiful review of POINTE in the Los Angeles Review of Books, which dissects my book in a way that I, the writer, never could, and says, “Pointe is a startlingly beautiful novel, singular in its voice and vision, and executed with unabashed honesty.”
Hope to see you at one of my events this month!
