COMING SOON

New Release

Stay tuned for upcoming events supporting the release of The Nine Lives of Rose Napolitano in April 2021.

In every woman there are many stories . . .

These are Rose’s.

Rose Napolitano is fighting with her husband, Luke, about prenatal vitamins. She promised she’d take them, but didn’t. Rose has always known that she didn’t want to become a mother. And Luke had promised that he’d never want children, either.  But now he has changed his mind. Their marriage has come down to this question: can Rose change hers as well?

But then, Rose has the same fight with Luke—again. This time, the fight goes differently, and so does Rose’s life, as she reimagines herself in a completely new way. And so it goes, through nine versions of Rose’s future. The Nine Lives of Rose Napolitano shows us, as Rose chooses, and chooses again, what it means to reinvent a life and become a different kind of person  than we ever imagined. What would change if we let go of our pre-conceived ideas of who we are and who we’re meant to be? 

A what-if novel with a brilliant, original structure, The Nine Lives of Rose Napolitano is destined to drive women’s conversations as they debate Rose’s choices. This is a  stunning story about love, loss, betrayal, divorce, death, a woman’s career and her identity–about finding one’s way into a future that wasn’t the future one planned, and the ways that fate intercedes when we least expect it.   It will have women talking deeply about not just motherhood, but who they are and who they want to become.
