Well, I was right in my first post here that I’d have exciting news before long… the only problem was, I couldn’t tell you about it! But now that I’ve been given the green light, I am so excited to share that my debut novel, The Valley and the Flood, is forthcoming from Razorbill/Penguin in fall 2020, exact date TBA. The story follows Rose, who, on the drive home from a disastrous visit with her late best friend's parents, chases a mysterious broadcast to a strange little desert town bracing for a disastrous flood... and she learns that not only is she the prophesied bringer of said flood, but that the key to stopping it lies in confronting the trauma she's tried so hard to ignore. I’ve been describing it as “an Odyssey remix by way of Twin Peaks.”

I’ll be back soon to tell you a little more about the book, how I came to write it, and its journey to publication!
