As an author of fiction based in the American south, I hope my writing resonates with you no matter where you live. In creating my first novel, Magenta Rave, or in the novel I'm currently working on, The Phenomenon's Daughter, my passion is to write authentically and to imbue my characters with both struggle and triumph, humor and grace. And, of course, a rockin' plot! If they're a little bit shocking, that's okay too. If you've read Magenta Rave or some of my Blog posts -- or for any other reason -- I'd love to hear back from you. A backyard chat over the fence between neighbors is a southern tradition I sorely miss.
