I have been receiving a lot of really wonderful feedback about Driftwood. I am often overwhelmed by the way the book resonates with readers who contact me. It is a real privilege to have such random human connection with strangers. Lovely, in fact.

With these messages come many questions. I will try to answer some of them here:

Are the characters based on people you know?

Not exactly. More like composites or just totally made up. I watch people and eavesdrop far too much. No one is safe. 

Do you have a literary agent?


Who has the film rights to the book?

Me. Just me.

Are you working on another novel?

Yes, and it is going to be incredible. I love it already and the first draft isn’t even near done.

Is your next book a continuation of Driftwood?

Not at all. That was self-contained. Onward.

What is your next novel about?

You’ll have to wait and see. 

Can I turn my essay in late?

No late papers are accepted. Stop asking. (That one was for my students.)
