House with a Blue Door, my first novel, is finally out! It's been a long wait—I wrote the original draft eight years ago—but I'm pleased with the result. You can buy it at the links below.
The story is inspired by the time I spent working at a group home for mentally handicapped residents, many of whom had additional diagnoses like Down syndrome, Tourette’s, and paranoid schizophrenia. My primary goal is to show this group of people as people, not stereotypes. My secondary goal is to spotlight the types of amazing staff members I encountered.
