My Book Has a Title!!

So, this has definitely been a long time coming!

If you know me well, you know I’ve been working on my endo stories for about 2 years now. These stories are near and dear to my heart, and honestly I think that’s why it’s taken me so long to get them out. I want to make sure I do them justice. I don’t want them to just be stories that say “Endometriosis hurts. There.” But I want the stories to be meaningful and to be beautifully written. I want you to finish reading my collection and feel as if you have read literature, even though you’ve really read my real life experiences.

I’ll even give you a little explanation of what to expect here, too. My stories will be a bit…experimental. I’ll be using a combination of music and myth to tell the tales in order to really get to the heart of what I want to say. That being said some stories will very clearly have mythological undertones, for example “Waves” (that features Poseidon and the sea). “Gorgons” will feature a very popular mythological creature and her struggles with men, power and injustice, paralleling my life with endometriosis, while stories, like “The Waltz,” are musical in nature and take you to a place all their own. Each covers a different aspect of endometriosis, but all come together to show just how powerful this disease really is.

So please, be patient a little while longer while I finish my collection of essays entitled…dun dun dunnnnn!!

“Gorgons Have Dreams Too and other Essays” coming late 2020!

Hopefully, we’ll have some cover art to be released soon too!
