she was and she was not


At long last, I have some info about my next book, including a title and a new release date:

SHE WAS AND SHE WAS NOT: A FAIRY TALE will be coming out in spring 2020 from Flatiron Books. The title takes inspiration from a traditional opening to Persian fairy tales: yeki bood, yeki nabood. This directly translates to “there was one, there wasn’t one,” but has been translated in different ways, including my particular favorite version, “there was and there was not.”

I’ve updated all the banners on my site as well, so if you click around and take a look, you’ll get some hints on some of the imagery and motifs you’ll find in the book!
