It’s been a while since I updated this blog because I’ve been busy working on a book for Viking Press! It’s called AFTER THE LAST BORDER for now and it features the stories of two refugees, one from Myanmar just as she’s resettling in Austin and one from Syria as she becomes a refugee. Their journeys have been so profound for me to experience as a friend and bystander; I’m delighted to partner with these friends to tell these important stories. Because both of their families remain in dangerous situations, their stories will be anonymized in the book, but we will be working closely together to make sure the world hears what they endured.
Here’s the announcement in Publishers Weekly.
And here’s an actual physical copy of the magazine. Still overwhelmed at that part.
I’m so excited to partner with my amazing editor and agent in this process and look forward to sharing much more very soon!
