The Starving Queen

A novel I copy-edited, The Starving Queen, by the gifted Dean Italiano, is now available for sale. This is truly a visceral, thought-provoking experience that speaks to issues of body image, and the horrors we perpetrate upon ourselves in a search for that unattainable perfection with which society and fashion media have infected us. I encountered shocking moments of recognition as I worked on The Starving Queen, and I have no doubt that this particular supernatural entity has stalked me for much of my life. This is a chilling novel by a very bright talent.
