Bibliography Adult fiction
“I love it. So unbelievably funny and insanely sad at the same time – and here I lie crying.”
“Buy it, read it, love it!”
“Yep, I loved it, and yep, I stretch read it.”
“It is black humor, ironic and at times quite funny, but that feeling of paralyzing grief, bland and misdirected anger is stronger.”
“Me on the Floor, Bleeding is the best YA novel I have read in a long time.”
