Georgia Under Water
Winner of a Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers award for fiction, this collection of linked short stories is set in Florida, on the frayed edges of coastal towns. Georgia Under Water is my favorite book of the books I’ve published and I’m forever grateful to Sarabande Books for supporting my work. I will never, ever forget the day Sarah Gorham called me at my office to tell me the good news.
Spike and Cubby’s Ice Cream Island Adventure
Spike and Cubby’s Ice Cream Island Adventure is a collaboration with the wonderful Amy Young. As is so often the case, our dogs seem to mirror our personalities. This is the story of a tidy, organized corgi with writer’s block. His best friend is a visual artist, and also a fun-loving, spontaneous risk taker. Mayhem ensues, of course, when they collaborate to solve a problem. It’s a stealth story of artistic process, set in our beloved haven, West Michigan. Published by Henry Holt.
