Tough Mauve

*The novel formerly known as And Yet the Bottle Tree’s Song is Sadder than Mine

So when I first started writing this book, it was an adult novel. Sure the main character is a teenage girl, but I hadn’t considered trying my hand at YA lit. Once I got Lulu through her journey and into South Carolina, I decided to make it a book for teen readers. My younger daughter always loved realistic fiction, and I wrote this with her in mind. I’ve got a big soft spot in my heart for this strong, feisty protagonist. You can read the first 20 or so pages here.
