A NEW SERIES: A MISS KING NOVEL
Lily, the first book in my new series, will be released on January 26. Each book in the series can stand alone. Readers won’t be left with a cliffhanger, but I hope that you will continue on the journey with Lily King. You will meet her as a ten-year-old child growing up in the 1950s and can follow her life up to the present day. With each new book, you will meet new characters. Some of the books in the series will be told from two or three different perspectives. Lily is told in Lily King’s voice.
What is Lily about?
Ten-year-old Lily King and her mother are being forced from their home in 1952 as part of Detroit’s planned “slum clearance.” With nowhere to go, the prospect of losing her home is just part of Lily’s mistrust of almost everyone, including her bed-bound mother—all 627 pounds of her. Young Lily learns quickly to hate washing each and every inch of that enormous body. She’s full of resentment toward her unloving mother and is searching for a way out. Two bright spots in Lily’s life are Miss Jackson, a numbers runner who also sells home-cooked dinners, and Miss Jackson’s boyfriend, London “Shorty” Biggs, a self-proclaimed gangster and jazz trombonist with a big heart. While they watch out for Lily, she’s worried that one day they may leave, too, like everyone else who’s been good to her—including her dad. Spend time with Lily, the first in a series and a decades-long journey of heartbreak, tragedy, and most of all—survival, and get to know how Lily becomes Miss King.
