An Alle Alert!
For writers, parents, and former children.
Publishes thrice weekly - crisp and lively!
Thrice means three: always three and only three.
Each week, I post:
one writing/publishing/promotions tip;
one flash think-piece; and
once shameless self-promotion disguised as a service piece or artistic referral. HA!
I’m a multi-prize-winning author and essayist, a mother, and a survivor of childhood trauma.
SO THAT’s what I write about.
My debut novel, As Far as You Can Go Before You Have to Come Back, has seven prizes and honors to its name, including The National League of American Pen Women’s Mary Kennedy Eastham Prize (for an excerpt).
“With a realistic redemption arc, As Far as You Can Go Before You Have to Come Back is a novel in which a survivor of abuse achieves a gritty, tender coming-of-age and reinvents herself.” —Karen Ribgy, The Foreword.
“A rare novel that shows how easily childhood trauma can be internalized and normalized, distorting our coming-of-age. Hall takes us by the hand and walks us to a better, more hopeful place. An outstanding debut.” —Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet.
