|I'm currently writing...||
I am writing a fiction novel that touches on growing up in rural Maine and a young girl realizing her place in this world. Parables are drawn between stories that her grandmother shares about a family of five monster sisters that lived in the area years ago. It is honest and sometimes ugly and often ridiculous.
