It has been quite a journey, but I am deeply excited to let go of the words I’ve been collecting inside me for ten plus years! Celebrate the release of my novel, “Everything Grows” on Friday, May 10th, at Bluestockings Bookstore in NYC at 7pm.
Bluestockings Bookstore is located at 172 Allen St. in NYC
The evening will include a live mini-musical featuring excerpts from the novel and original songs performed by Hydrogen Junkbox (featuring Aimee Herman, Eric Alter, and David Lawton). Copies of EVERYTHING GROWS will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
EVERYTHING GROWS is an LGBTQ+ Young Adult (age 16 and older) coming-of-age novel in which a teenage girl grapples with the suicide of a classmate and her mother’s depression, while discovering her own gender and sexual identity.
The novel has received extensive pre-publication praise, with BN Teen Blog citing it as one of 12 most anticipated historical YA fiction of 2019, and Autostraddle (the world’s most popular lesbian website) named it one of the “LGBT YA Books to Get Excited for in 2019.” Foreword Reviews raves that EVERYTHING GROWS “will win over the hearts of its young adult audiences,” while Booklist praises it as “sensitive and informative.”
