Ohio Arts Council Award

A huge, big, obnoxiously large THANK YOU to the Ohio Arts Council for honoring me with an Individual Excellence Award! When I submitted the opening of this new novel last fall it was very much in the baby phase and I had just written the words a week or so before. I was crazy excited about the story and chapters, but in that way you are when you first fall in love and can’t see any of the red flags. Still, I put my faith in it and sent it off, and for it to be chosen for this award is incredibly validating. This story is so important to me, and telling it makes me feel both very brave and very vulnerable. As I begin my second round of revision, I just hope to do it justice.
