I am thrilled to announce that my second novel, Utah, is forthcoming from William Morrow/HarperCollins in 2019. This novel is dear to my heart, a book about two sisters – one a former NASCAR driver and the other a falconer just released from prison – who take to the road from Illinois to Utah to attend their mother’s funeral, a former paleontologist who has left them geocached clues at multiple sites along their route to ease their grief and help them find their way. Complicating their journey are a series of plane crashes that have been occurring around the world as the climate shifts, forcing them to take their journey by car. For me, this is a book about the earth, and a book about women being where they’re not supposed to be. I’m so gratetul to my agent, Kerry D’Agostino, for providing me the chance to work with HarperCollins again, and I’m so excited to work with Jessica Williams at William Morrow. The photo below is from my own solo road trip last summer to Arches, Canyonlands, Salt Lake City and the Spiral Jetty to research the book.
