Novel Excerpt

You’ll find that many writers in the ad business have a film script or novel-in-progress tucked into a dark desk drawer – I am one of them. I’ve been working on this novel ‘on’ and ‘off’ for a few years. It’s a coming of age story about a young girl who is inching her way along a cultural tightrope, trying to find a comfortable place to fit in. This excerpt occurs near the beginning of the novel, and takes the reader back in time to the marriage of her father and step-mother.
