Book Two Has Found a Home

Apr 30, 2017

I’m excited to announce that I have landed a contract for my second novel, No Good Asking, with ECW Press in Toronto. ECW Press is one of the most diversified independent publishers in North America, and I’ve so enjoyed reading their literary novels, including Heather Tucker’s stunning debut, The Clay Girl, and Jen Sookfong Lee’s page-turner The Conjoined. It's such an honour to have my book added to their catalogue.

I’ll be working with the talented Jen Knoch, Senior Editor, as we move through the production stages towards a book launch in October 2018. Many thanks to my lovely agent, Stephanie Sinclair from Transatlantic, who helped the No Good Asking family of characters find the perfect home.
