Thank you so much for reading Wild Beauty, and for recommending! It's much appreciated. In terms of my academic background, I have always loved stories and books, though growing up I was more of a math and science geek. Later, I was fortunate enough to get a scholarship to a college that encouraged me studying both science and literature, so that got me used to the idea that I could be interested in both; there's usually at least one scientific element in my magical realism. Thanks for your question, and thank you again for recommending my books!(less)

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed reading! Though I don't have specific plans to revisit the Palomas and the Corbeaus, I imagine their world will pull me back at some point. In the meantime, I'm working on my second book, which has new characters but some of the same themes--magical realism, the meeting of different cultures, and secrets that refuse to stay hidden. I'll be sharing the title, release date, and more very soon! (less)

“Even in its first faint traces, love could alter a landscape. It wrote unimagined stories and made the most beautiful, forbidding places.”
Anna-Marie McLemore, Wild Beauty
tags: love

“This is was what their mothers would say if she and her cousins ever told them the things they folded inside their hearts. Twice as many paths to trouble, their mothers would whisper. As though their daughters loving both men and women meant they wanted all of them in the world. There was no way to tell their mothers the truth and make them believe it, that hearts that loved both boys and girls were no more reckless or easily won than any other heart. They loved who they loved. They broke how they broke. And the way it happened depended less on what was under their lovers' clothes and more on what was wrapped inside their spirits.”
Anna-Marie McLemore, Wild Beauty

“When they both realized they were heartbroken enough to want the love torn from their rib cages, they touched each other with their hands and their mouths, and they forgot they wanted to be cured.”
Anna-Marie McLemore, When the Moon Was Ours
