HELLO MY FRIENDS.
It has been quite a year, and a long time since I updated this blog. I *had* been planning on writing here a lot and then something called 2020 happened and the best laid plans, etc. BUT I DID WRITE A LOT IN 2020. I WROTE SOME BOOKS. And the first of these is coming out on APRIL 6th! It’s called Hello, Cruel Heart, and it’s inspired by the new Disney film Cruella, which is coming out in May.
WHAT IS THIS BOOK?
You can read about it here, but in short: it’s London in the summer of 1967. Fashion. Music. Art. Madness. It’s all going on. And right in the middle of it is a girl named Estella, who has an inner voice called Cruella. She likes making clothes–it’s her passion. But she’s also broke and living in a lair with her friends Horace and Jasper. Then, two rich and connected people come along and sweep Estella up in the world of Swinging London high society.
