One Grand Books & Writers at Lunch

I recently had the opportunity to give a short talk at Seminary Hill Winery in the Hudson Valley, sponsored by Aaron Hicklin of One Grand Books in Narrowsburg NY and Seminary Hill Winery. I was there with another truly lovely author, Brahna Yassky.

We talked about journeys, the one that Brahna took as she details in her memoir as a burn victim and survivor, and the fictional journey that Jaya takes in my novel, from being a dutiful daughter to a confident and strong woman in her own right.

Along the way, Aaron also coined Finding Warrior Pose as "enjoyable, something you don't expect, dark and disturbing, perhaps the world's first yoga dystopia". The River Reporter did a nice write-up as well, "Don't judge a book by it's cover".

I most enjoyed talking with readers, many of whom are yoga practitioners, after the event!
