Writers & Lovers follows Casey, a young author with humor and heart, exploring the exhilarating leap between the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another.

Grieving her mother's recent death, newly heartbroken, and shouldering crushing student debt, Casey lives in her brother's annoying friend's moldy Boston coach house, working on her novel in the mornings and waitressing at a swanky Cambridge restaurant at seemingly all other hours. A book-release party introduces two points of the love triangle Casey becomes entangled in. The romance will draw readers in, but Casey's journey as a writer, alone, is the book's strongest magnet. With deep and sensationally wrought feeling—Casey feels her anxiety as swarming bees and the author leaves no barrier between readers and smart, genuine, and funny Casey. A closely observed tale of finding oneself, and one's voice, while working through grief. 

Writers & Lovers is available in print, CD audiobook, ebook and eaudiobook formats.
