Interviews in Portugal

Along with the release of the Portuguese edition of my book, I got to do interviews with two different Portuguese outlets! With my Spanish background, I can figure out about 50% of my own words. It's possibly the strangest thing I've ever experienced. Thank you so much to André Santos and Marta Miranda--obrigada!

New Writing!

After the madness and joy of my book tour, I had the privilege of a two-week residency at the Vermont Studio Center (I took this photo on a hike up Stowe Peak). It was such a treat to get to meet new writer and artist friends, and to spend some time working on my next (!) book. 

This summer I was finally able to publish some new writing:

"How to Write a Book in Four Months" at the San Francisco Book Review

"June 21" at Essaying Daily


Interview with MSU Honors College Alumni Magazine

In November 2017, I visited my alma mater, Michigan State University, as a part of their Michigan Writers Series. I had a wonderful time visiting classes to talk Harry Potter, writing, creative nonfiction, and MSU nostalgia, and read to a lovely group in the evening (including my parents, who are also MSU alumni). I was also interviewed by the Honors College alumni magazine, HConnections. Check it out here

Happy pub day!
