Here's a bio I came across today after following a link on twitter:
I have this love/hate relationship with tiny-town Texas [the setting for the novel]. Obviously I love it -- I grew up there, my family is there, my heart is there. My daddy. Sisters. Nieces. My friends. I know that place like I know my own bed.
I don't live there. I can't. I'm a pink-haired, tattooed, opinionated lesbian that refuses to apologize for being who I am. It's impossible to go home without making the people that live there incredibly uncomfortable and, unfortunately, that can lead to violence. I'll never be able to go home again. I know that.
It's brutally honest without being self-pitying. It's GREAT writing. It's utterly compelling.
This is a bio that even without the description of the book would make me want to read pages.
Of course, come to find out the book isn't finished, or sold, or published so I'm going to have to do one thing I don't do well at ALL: wait.
I'm pretty sure this will be worth it.
