Mortal Things has been a constant in my life for more than three decades. It began in the late eighties as a short story, which morphed into a novella then into a novel.

Set during a time of changing values and beliefs and in a Philadelphia neighborhood known for its diversity of ethnicity, race, and social class, Mortal Things shines light on the impact of the families we are given and the ones we choose. Being grounded in something larger than oneself matters, especially when old angers come home, but Sarah Goins, Mike Flannagan, and Domenic Gallo are not equally anchored to what might sustain them. 

I am thrilled to announce the October 4 publication of Mortal Things and to share a peek at the novel’s stunning cover, designed by Tim Ogline!
