Work in Progress

I get a lot of questions - what am I writing now? I'm always a little hesitant to answer that for a lot of reasons. First, I'm not done - I'm about 3/4 of the way through a massive revision and things change along the way so it's hard to really know how the whole story is going to turn out. And with the time issues I've had lately there's always the fear - will I finish? will my agent like it? Will I be able to sell it?

So instead of a concrete answer I'll give you a little snippet of what my work in progress is about:

It's about a college girl who is living in the shadow of her over-achieving family.

It's about entering that battlefield known as first love and first heartbreak.

It's about waking up one day and realizing, I have no idea what I'm doing with my life. Ever feel that way??

It's about taking a chance on a total redirection.

And of course it's about the wacky and eccentric sidekicks in our lives that make us laugh.
