What will Kentucky Book Festival visitors find on your table?
Intermission is the story of a popular, multiracial girl group, the Diamonds, who reluctantly consider reuniting for a twentieth anniversary tour, despite vows never to speak again. Each has their own memory of who did what to whom, and that memory has governed their life decisions. The truth is somewhere in between, and Intermission is the story of how they get to that truth.
Whom do you invite to stop by? Who will benefit from reading your book?
Fans of authors ReShonda Tate Billingsly, Kimberla Lawson Roby and especially the book Daisy Jones and the Six, will enjoy Intermission. I invite anyone looking for a fun, entertaining book to read Intermission. With so much tragedy, divisiveness and rancor in the news, we all need a break!
Could you please tell us something curious about you and/or your book?
I previously owned a bookstore and never intended to be a writer.
Is this your first time participating in Kentucky Book Festival? If yes – what are you looking forward to the most? If you’ve participated before – what was your favorite experience at the Festival?
This is my first time participating in the Kentucky Book Festival. I’m looking forward to meeting with readers, especially after in-person events were squashed during the pandemic.
