Please come help me celebrate the publication of my new novel Annika Rose at my favorite Twin Cities bookstore! Come early to pick up your copy and browse Eat My Words' fabulously eclectic collection of used books and books by local authors as well as pottery and art. I'll talk about the book, do a short reading, sign books, and then try my darndest to drag you to an after-party at the 331 Club across the street (Wednesday nights are KFAI’s House Party with Harold Tremblay—one of my favorite live music series in town).
Annika Rose won Red Hen Press’s 2022 Women’s Prose Prize. In Annika Rose, I re-tell the story of Rosemary’s Baby in northern Minnesota—with a kind of feminist twist. Though there’s no supernatural element in my novel, the story is told through the eyes of the weird and wild Annika Rose, one of my favorite characters I’ve ever created. I’m looking forward to sharing her with the world.
