THRILLED to announce that on August 28th, 2020, I signed with Literary Agent Paula Munier of Talcott Notch Literary for my creative nonfiction manuscript “Growing Up Under Water”

Manuscript’s Logline:

A delicate boy in Southern Gothic, mid-century New Orleans uses his beauty and talent to escape a cruel mother and family history of violence only to deepen his wounds while negotiating the glamorous but treacherous 1980’s New York art-world. After surviving the AIDS crisis, sexual assault, heartbreak, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, it is his redneck, homophobic, older brother’s threat to shoot him at their mother’s funeral—precipitated by Trump’s ascendency—that finally jeopardizes his lifetime faith in art’s redemption.
