Well-Read Women: Portraits of Fiction’s Most Beloved Heroines (available for pre-order!)


I’m thrilled to announce that my book Well-Read Women: Portraits of Fiction’s Most Beloved Heroines is available for pre-order (official release this September). I illustrated 50 of the most legendary female characters in all their captivating beauty and hand lettered quotes from their dialogue. Meet these heroines, befriend them, and in the process, perhaps learn about yourself. Whether you’ve read some or all of these stories, I hope you enjoy gazing into the eyes of all of the powerful, damaged, beautiful, and incandescent women in my book. I hope you follow them back to their original stories and come to see them in your own way, too.

Also, please “like” the Well-Read Women Facebook page and I’d be so curious to find out who your favorite female character in literature is and what she means to you if you’d like to share in the comments.

It’s a beautiful package with cloth spine, de-bossed title, and gorgeous 4-color printing. I hope you love it!
