I’m so excited to finally be able to make this available: What We Did While You Were Gone, a 26-page short story featuring Hetty, Reese, and Byatt from Wilder Girls and set early in their friendship, prior to the events of the book.

Available as a PDF or an epub file

Any proceeds will go to New Urban Arts (, a non-profit in my community that provides support for Rhode Island teenagers via access to a studio space and mentorship, as well arts programs and further education.

If you have questions, feel free to contact me!

(This story was originally available July 2020 in a more designed format as a preorder reward for Burn Our Bodies Down.)
