Freshmen Common Read: Above Us Only Sky at Virginia Wesleyan College

I am honored that my second novel Above Us Only Sky was chosen as the Freshmen Common Read for this fall 2017 at Virginia Wesleyan College in Norfolk, Virginia. I can't wait to speak with
the incoming class of freshmen and faculty about my book, which explores many disciplines: literary, art, historical, political and magical.

George Glass Loves Lily Snow

I wrote, THE END... 

This novel, George Glass Loves Lily Snow, came to me in the same way dreams and visions come to the protagonist George, without warning, spectacularly vivid. I had the idea for this book five years ago, started it, then set it aside, eventually losing the pages in one of my many computer-glitch catastrophes. Enter the beautiful novelist Lydia Netzer. She visited a bookclub at my house for her novel, How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky, and bam, synchronicity, right time, right place... as she was talking, the story in its entirety came like a gift from the muse.

I wrote it beginning in January, and just finished it last night. I am grateful to my muse.
