Excerpt:

In the time it took my mother to let me go, summer never changed to fall. Less than two months after her heart beat for mine, I became her living ghost.

We floated in parallel worlds, sharing blood, sharing tissue, the space between us widening with each infant’s longing wail.  For nine months I heard her whispers and felt her lies, love, and tears. And then she left me.

For six months after her face dissolved into a foggy memory, I was no one’s daughter. I was someone’s lament, someone’s case number, a stranger’s hope. But for a few brief moments in my frenetic early life, I lurked in a shadowy limbo where unwanted children go to wait.


Tonight is the launch party and yours truly is a featured reader. Thank you for ALL of your support and I can’t wait to keep growing with you!tildereleasepartyad
