Fran Singer is a regular 8th grader relishing her role in the school play, enjoying hanging out with her best friend and thinking of ways to steer clear of her annoying little brother. . . when suddenly, in a matter of seconds, everything changes. An unintentional tragic accident with major consequences shoots her out of her ordinary world into one racked with guilt, shame, and complete alienation. Starting over after all that isn't easy. . . but is it possible? Will her life be better, the second time around?

BIOGRAPHY In fiction, I write in multiple genres (dystopian, fantasy, romance, young adult) and forms (novels, short stories, plays, and poetry). I love them all! Why choose? My fantasy novel, Ell, will be published in 2021 by Scarsdale Publishing and dystopian The Potrero Complex by Regal House Publishing in 2022. I’ve re-issued Fran, The Second Time Around, concerning a teenager whose life is upended by a terrible tragedy. I tend to research every piece quite deeply (even the romance!), bringing my journalist past into my fiction. I’m perenially preoccupied with the ways politics and culture influence behavior. Theater productions include the Dada-inspired Terminal Lucidity; Raw, produced as part of the 2015 Women’s Voices Festival; Exit Pluto; and Always Never Now (on YouTube). Selected short plays are published by Routledge and Leicester Bay Theatricals, and short fiction by Flying Ketchup Press and Fleas on the Dog. I am a 2020 Petrichor Prize finalist and a 2014 recipient of a Rubys Artist Award from the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance.
