Diving In

One of the people who reached out to me after “Hidden in a Suitcase” was published at Guernica is Carly Hoffmana Kindle Singles editor. After a good bit of back-and-forth, and some serious revision, I accepted her invitation to dive in as a Kindle Singles author. My short memoir, tentatively titled Walk Away, will be published this spring — not quite 100 pages about my journey from abused teenage runaway to up-and-coming trial attorney. Stay tuned, swimmers!

Some readers whose families had gone through struggles (prison, addiction, separation byFullSizeRender adoption) similar to the ones in “Hidden in a Suitcase” took the time to let me know they had been touched by my story. I keep their notes near my desk as antidotes for when I
doubt myself.
