I Promise No Lies Up For Preorder
Super excited about this book, which comes out October 18! You can preorder it here. It's really special to me for a few reasons. First, it's a bisexual awakening book, and I wrote my way through my tumult of memories about processing my own sexuality— I grew up in a time when being accused of liking other girls was the grossest possible thing a high school girl could feel. Second, it features a production of Fiddler on the Roof, which I performed in high school. I loved drama and theater then, and still do.
The best friend narrative here means a lot to me as well. I didn't know I was madly crushing on my high school best friend, who went to a different school than I did, and that she was likely madly crushing on me. This book is my first attempt to write around that, and it has a special place in my heart for that. I likely would have reacted the same way Heath does if anything had happened at the time, and writing that out that knowledge and those feelings both breaks me and heals me at the same time.
