Recently finished my fourth novel, tentatively titled “All is Not Well.”
It’s mostly set in Wilsonville, where two of my other novels were set, and is about a girl who is a once in a generation athlete, and as a result is ostracized by the boys because she is better than them, and the girls because she doesn’t care about girly-girl things. This is well before Title IX and as she grows up she becomes ever more frustrated because she can find no outlet for her talent. Her becoming a woman is interrupted by a horrific event that changes her life forever. I’d be giving too much away if I said anymore.
Now begins the thankless task of trying to get it published. I say I’ll give it a year but probably won’t last that long before I self-publish it.
