I'm delighted to share that I've been awarded the Byerley Memorial Scholarship to attend the 2018 Mendocino Coast Writers Conference. I am beyond excited to attend a novel workshop with the amazing Shanthi Sekaran, a fiction writer whose novel Lucky Boy left an indelible impression on me. I also cannot wait to return to the beautiful north coast, which Ryan and I visited for the first time shortly after Christmas. There is something about that wide open sky and the rugged cliffs along the water that make anything feel possible.
Many, many thanks to the kind folks at MCWC for making this possible for me. For the first time since having my daughter I feel ready to rework my novel--to call out characters who have lived inside me for more than a decade. I can't wait to see what this brings.
