At heart, I’m a literary fiction writer, so I’m rich in soul and poor of pocket. To sustain my desire to write for adults, I write for kids ($$$). So far I’ve published eleven books (under pseudonyms) and one for adults. My next book is a memoir, for adults, about a rare, esoteric emotion, no one has ever heard of called anxiety.

In the vein of bestselling memoirs about mental illness like Andrew Solomon’s Noonday Demon, Sarah Hepola’s Blackout and Daniel Smith’s Monkey Mind comes a gorgeously immersive, immediately relatable, and brilliantly funny memoir about living life on the razor’s edge of panic.

“This moody novel is about dependency and inaction, but it is told with brave, risky language. Much of the time this pays off with metaphors that are so fresh they are almost jarring; they deliver the shock of unexpected truth.” -the San Francisco Chronicle
