"Lovely writing, highly charged emotions, satisfying read." 

School Library Journal.

I won't cry. Like an idiot baby.

 

So hot. Black sweat down my back. Don't melt my dress.

I feel the warmth rising. the ghosts of the forest

steaming the air.

 

It's been three years since Memphis disappeared.

Excerpt from

GOTHIC LOLITA.

I illustrated my last three books with drawings and photographs. For Gothic Lolita, I recreated Tokyo in the streets of Manhattan and cast dozens of people of many ages and nationalities. It was a ton of fun and I can't wait to cast the next book. I like to create a Utopia and then document it.
