Everything All At Once

While I continue to try and figure out how this space will grow as I grow (I know I haven’t done much to it for a long while now!) I thought I’d drop off the newly revealed cover for my third book, EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE. Not one second of your support is taken for […]

Happy book birthday to: The Lost & Found

Last night I couldn’t sleep. I had long and rambling dreams about fountain pens and bookstores. I woke up many times, convinced it was morning—only to have it be more like midnight, one, two. Today’s a big day. My second book, The Lost & Found, is out today. I’m so grateful to have the chance […]

Unboxing The Lost & Found!

The Lost & Found comes out a week from today and the finished copies have arrived!! I made a little unboxing video to celebrate, and I’ll be sharing lots of fun photos and quotes and goodies up until it’s released on July 5. I’ll also be writing up a longer piece talking more about my […]

december first.

When I tried to think of a title for this post, the first thing that popped into my head was December First- which is when I’m actually sitting down to put it together. Of course, it won’t publish until tomorrow, but the sentiment remains the same. The “wherethefuckhastheyeargone” sentiment that keeps creeping up behind me and scaring me half […]

eight months to go.

The funniest, most inconsistent friend I have is time: you never know when it’s going to speed up or slow down or pause all together or erupt into a million pieces, leaving you to try and figure out which goes where. Lately it’s been slow and easy: the mornings stretching long and quiet, the sunlight taking […]
