For Molly Kennan, senior year is already an epic disaster. It feels like the whole school knows she made out with Lily at that party, and now she’s accidentally outed herself as a lesbian. Her ex-best friend is trying to ruin her life, and school generally sucks. All she wants is to drown her sorrows in sweet potato fries, but she finds herself tongue-tied by the diner’s new waitress, Zia.
I’m so excited to announce the release of my newest book. This one is close to my heart in a lot of ways. I grew up in a similarly small town, and while I didn’t experience the issues with my coming out that Molly does, a lot of the worries and fears she has I’ve had. Like Molly, I was lucky to have great friends and family to help me get through.
Unlike Molly, I’m much older now, with two kids of my own and that keeps me away from blogging, reading, and writing as much as I used to. So for anyone out there who cares, I apologize for not being very active on this site. I’m going to try to do better. You can also follow me on facebook for slightly more interaction. The link is in the header.
I hope you will pick up What Happens When and that it will bring you as much joy to read as it brought me to write.
