MY NAME IS: Nora Zelevansky (the editorial director of Live The Process).
MY BOOK IS CALLED:
THE PUBLICATION DATE IS:
April 19th, 2016 (today!) with St. Martin’s Press.
I WAS INSPIRED TO WRITE IT WHEN:
I started thinking about how coming-of-age isn’t only a childhood experience. We’re all constantly trying to evolve with grace, as our identities change.
A 28-year-old woman named Marjorie Plum, who peaked in high school and can’t get a handle on adulthood. When her world gets turned upside down and her old friends drop away with her old life, she finds solace with a new musician roommate who looks like a pixie and talks like the Dalai Lama, and an 11-year-old tutee who acts as the Ghost of Marjorie Past. (A mindfulness practice helps too!) The return of a questionable childhood crush and the appearance of a grouchy, but intriguing new boss further complicate the equation, as Marjorie struggles with the ultimate question: Who does she want to be?
MY HOPE IS THAT READERS WILL:
Find the novel breezy, funny and relatable. A perfect way to ring in the spring!
MY NEXT BOOK MIGHT BE:
First person. And about a boy. Or not?
THE TITLE OF MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY WOULD BE:
Have You Seen My Keys? . . . and other short stories.
IF I WAS A CHARACTER FROM FICTION, I'D BE:
Elizabeth Bennet (at least I’d like to be!).
