In my novel, MY ONE SQUARE INCH OF ALASKA, a pair of siblings (Donna and Will) escape the strictures of their 1950s industrial Ohio town, go on the adventure of a lifetime, and find the courage to embrace, and follow, their dreams. I'm so delighted that MY ONE SQUARE INCH OF ALASKA is published by Penguin Plume on January 29, 2013. Please see the book's page for reviews and media interviews (including a fun TV interview!) (First chapter available on publisher's site.)
I am also the Literary Life columnist for the Dayton Daily News,
