WINTER LOON In The Wild (February, 2019)

Absolutely over the moon about this review in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I so appreciated how the reviewer, Pamela Miller, seemed to really get some key things about the story. She writes that Wes loves both of his parents despite their deep flaws “as children do.” That’s such a subtle and beautiful acknowledgement of the way families work, how people stay in abusive relationships. She closes with, “Nothing is simple, easy or predictable in Wes’ story, yet it is highly believable and inspiring, and a thoughtful study of the complexities of family and the nature of true belonging. “Winter Loon” is a page-turner, beautifully rendered, and a most impressive debut.” And the review has now been shared in over 20 publications nationwide!
