I've read quite a few books on depression, however, so I was interested in exploring a mental illness that isn't given as much "attention" - aside from a certain sensationalized autobiography that ended up probably being almost entirely made up for the sake of entertainment. That is how I arrived at a character with DID (although Molly ALSO suffers from depression and anxiety and each of these are equally important to her character). Thank you for asking!(less)

Everything All At Once

While I continue to try and figure out how this space will grow as I grow (I know I haven’t done much to it for a long while now!) I thought I’d drop off the newly revealed cover for my third book, EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE.


Not one second of your support is taken for granted.


I think you’ll see some changes here soon (good ones!).

“The people we love get under our skin and crawl through our veins and fine their way into our heart. They choke up our blood flow and mess up our breathing and tangle themselves through our bodies like wire. Like razors, like fire.
We remember them even when we don't remember them.
We try and forget, but it's pointless.
Even amnesia. Even comas and brain damage and traumatic shock.
Whatever makes us not remember, we still remember.
Our minds flounder like fish but our bodies...
Our bodies remember.”
Katrina Leno, The Half Life of Molly Pierce

“Because there was nothing in a girl’s history that might negate her right to choose what happens to her body.”
Katrina Leno, Summer of Salt

“I knew that he would use that gun, because that is what small, scared men did: they used things more powerful than themselves to make up the difference. They hid behind weapons of mass destruction: big guns and bigger bombs.”
Katrina Leno, Summer of Salt
