Last flight for On that one-way trip to Mars

Posted on

Sadly my first book, On that one-way trip to Mars, is now out of print. My publisher Bottlecap Press informed me that they sold the last backstock copy, so that’s a wrap on my voyage to Mars. On that one-way trip to Mars was published in May 2016 and was nominated for an Elgin Award in 2017. I […]

Reading in NYC

Read this awesome book mostly on the plane ride home and then during the most painful cold/ear infection of my life, hence the tissues. It’s hilarious, filthy and spot on with how girls think in their teens. Go read it!

I read in the car, as my mom guided us through terrible traffic, while my stepdad watched a basketball game, and alone, in my room. It’s the first book I’ve reread.
