My first novel. Tells the intertwined stories of four characters coming of age in the fictional town in Minnisapa, Minnesota in the 1970s.
Memoir. Tells the story of my childhood in the idyllic but fragile small town of Rollingstone, Minnesota and how the combination of real loss and false nostalgia shaped my adult self.
