There’s nothing simple about work and family life today — it’s no wonder people dream of a different way. My 89,000 word debut novel The Wannabees follows three imperfect heroines and their efforts to test a piece of bumper sticker wisdom: It is never to late to be what you might have been. But how will their community react when secrets bubble to the surface?
As an avid reader and writer on issues of class, community, shaming and busyness (real and self-made), I decided it was time to tackle them all in a novel. The Wannabees also includes some Bridget Jones-worthy humor, as we all could benefit from a good laugh these days.
The Wannabees is just the read for fans of Liane Moriarty’s novels about marriage, parenthood, neighbors and modern family life (think Big Little Lies, What Alice Forgot).
As of April 2016, I’m thrilled to announced I’ve signed with Liz Parker of InkWell Management. I’m an Inkwellian! You can read more about my agent and next steps here.
Can’t wait to share the actual novel. Onward.
