I have two book to query, the first is an essay collection covering the three months I spent in Morocco the fall of 2018. This collection is still in second draft; one more round of revisions followed by beta readers are next.
The second book, what I’m considering my On the Road collection, is being drafted. I have fourteen essays outlined.
When you spend 30 days in an SUV, mostly by yourself driving, you have a lot of time to think–I thought a lot about the road trip I’d taken 11 years earlier with my mother, my auntie and my grandparents; and I thought about my life and how desperate I was to find a purpose for it. You also have a lot of time to admire how beautiful the world is.
