Olivia Boler is the author of YEAR OF THE SMOKE GIRL, a coming-of-age novel published by Dry Bones Press in 2000. Gary Snyder called it a “dense weave in the cross-cultural multi-racial world of complex, educated hip contemporary coast-to-coast America...It is a fine first novel, rich in paradox and detail.”

Her second novel, THE FLOWER BOWL SPELL, is available as an ebook on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com. It's a paranormal adventure, a bit of a departure from her earlier work, but addresses the same themes of multi-racialism and self-acceptance. Plus, it has cool urban witches in it, so that's fun.

I’ll just tell it to you because it’s the most common women’s name of my generation and therefore lends a certain anonymity: Jennifer. You probably figured that out, right? So, anyway….Their […]
