Galleys for my novel, Further Out Than You Thought . . .
Christmas came early! HarperCollins just sent out my galleys, and we’re set for an August 5th, 2014 publication!
Further Out Than You Thought tells the story of three dreamers who find themselves on the verge of transformation. Working as a stripper to put herself through graduate school, twenty-five-year-old poet Gwendolyn Griffin, aka Stevie, has grown accustomed to a lifestyle that had once stimulated and excited. Her perpetually stoned boyfriend, Leo, dresses in period costume to hawk his music downtown, and seems to be losing his already tenuous grip on reality. And their flamboyant best friend and neighbor, nightclub crooner Count Valiant, is slowly withering away. When the city explodes after the Rodney King verdict, the chaos becomes a catalyst for change—and Gwen, discovering she is pregnant, is pulled between the girl she’s been and the woman she could become.
