Publishers Weekly Review

I’m thrilled and humbled to share the very first review for Letters to Zell from Publishers Weekly. Along with granting me a cherished red star, they said:

“The rich and realistic depictions of these young women, and their touching efforts to navigate old and new relationships in a changing world, display a deep understanding of human nature and the ways that well-meaning attempts to help one’s friends can go awry.”

I can’t wait to share these women’s stories with you in July. You can pre-order here.

Cover Reveal: Letters to Zell

A belated happy 2015, dearest readers. I’ve been quiet here for a variety of reasons — some good and some not so good, but I’m back with something that will hopefully make up for the long absence: The gorgeous cover for Letters to Zell, my first novel, forthcoming July 1st!


I  couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful realization of an idea I’d had for the cover — looking out on the LA skyline from Grimmland. The wonderful folks at Cyanotype Book Architects, under the direction of 47North’s Editorial Lead (and my acquiring editor), Jason Kirk, realized this gorgeous collaboration over the last couple months. I’m honored and thrilled and could go on and on and on. But I won’t. Instead, I’ll let you know you can pre-order the book here, whenever your sweet heart desires.

Still curious as to what I’ve been up to? See what I’ve been helping with alongside Empire Lascaux over at Easy Street.
