“When We Were Flowers” forthcoming from Wild Rose Press

My next novel, When We Were Flowers is forthcoming from Wild Rose Press. Check out the blurb below:

In 2011, Tara Larson is told that her English teaching contract would not be renewed. She moves from her small hometown of Minot, North Dakota to take an Assistant Language Teaching position in Tokyo, Japan. Having barely traveled outside her home state, Tara finds new cultural experiences while in the Land of the Rising Sun. It is there that she meets Ami Kishiguchi and the two share an inexorable bond. However, when the Tohoku earthquake and nuclear disaster threaten to separate them, Tara must decide if she will stay and continue her relationship or leave Japan for the safety of home.
