Quick: A Novel

Updated: Oct 30, 2019

Quick is a novel I was commissioned to write and publish serially in Avenue Magazine. The novel is an exploration of people living in the digital age and attempts to highlight the changing nature of identity in a post-book world. Like many writers, I have reams of unpublished work in real and virtual folders, so the serial publication model helped me get over the fear of publishing something bad. It was warmly received, but I believe that because the serial approach created a more casual environment where people were less critical of what I was trying to do. I am currently working on a new novel, and have a great writing mentor who is helping me refine my approach to the form.
