The Puppeteer's Daughters Forthcoming July 2022

I'm thrilled to share that my new novel, The Puppeteer's Daughters, will be published by Turner Publishing's Keylight imprint in July 2022! You can watch me talk about it HERE. In the background of the video is a "puppet bouquet" with stick puppets my daughter made and performed in elementary school.

Here's a synopsis:

At his 80th birthday party, renowned puppeteer Walter Gray surprises his three daughters with an announcement that there is a fourth. A torn paternity test—and a will that places a condition on each daughter’s inheritance—suggest that the missing daughter isn’t a figment of his dementia. In searching for the fourth daughter and struggling to claim the legacy Walter has left them, the sisters must confront and renegotiate their relationships with their father and each other. Infused with fairy tales that sometimes spill magic into the sisters’ real lives, The Puppeteer’s Daughters is about fathers and daughters, but also about the cost and rewards of claiming a creative life.
