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

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

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.
