Hey! You found my website! This probably means you know at least a little something about my young adult novel, Aftercare Instructions. Maybe you’ve read it already. Maybe it’s in your to-read pile. Thank you for caring. This is something we all could use a little more of these days, don’t you think?

Aftercare Instructions is my first novel. I wrote this book because I wanted to explore how we take care of ourselves (and each other) in the aftermath of life changing events. And how most likely, the physical part is the easiest to heal from. It’s all that other mushy gushy, emotional stuff that is tougher to get through, isn’t it? And if it wasn’t for my friends and loved ones, I don’t know how I’d get through it sometimes. And my books. Obviously, because those are our friends too! :)
