East Was Texas

I am seeking representation for a 96,000 word upmarket novel, East Was Texas, a story about two strangers finding salvation in unexpected places—illuminating the space where the life we leave behind and the life we’re running toward barely disentangles.

Two artists--one running toward her future, the other held firmly in place by his past--meet. When the world that's held them together falls apart, can they overcome their fears and save the place that's saved them? 


Anna Reardon escapes her hometown with her camera and a hundred or so rolls of film she’s never brought herself to develop--in search of a beauty she’s only ever seen in other people’s photographs.


Bennett McCarthy--the local mystery sitting squarely in his discontent--hasn’t written a song in years. But then he meets Anna and something miraculous happens.. He writes a lyric.
