My new book


My new book went up on the Shebooks site today.

You can get it here.

The beautiful cover art is from artist Deborah Younglao's croton series. The publisher's blurb says: "Discover the intoxicating rhythms of a Jamaica wrought with political turmoil, bustling with colorful souls, and ripe with the racing hearts of young lovers." I wrote most of this novella-sized piece right after I got back from my most recent trip to Jamaica in January, when the hidden girl I was before leaving home at 18 was suddenly visible to me. It felt as if a lost piece of me had been rediscovered and could now be reclaimed.
