Dear Book Clubs, Libraries, Special Groups: I'm happy to Skype or visit with you in person. Contact me via Facebook, Twitter or email to set up a date. Thank you.
"Book clubs will find a lot to talk about [Night Swim], including parenting, grieving, teen sex, sibling relationships, and the healing power of music. In addition, book clubs will want to discuss how far mental health care has come in the last forty years in terms of diagnosis, therapy, and pharmaceuticals." Candace for SheKnows.com, January magazine
"Night Swim can be read on multiple levels... Beautifully written...perfect for book clubs."
