Video: Why I Wrote Horseshoes and Hand Grenades

I am often asked why I wrote Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, my novel that is both a coming-of-age story for two young women, and a probe into the minds of victims of sexual harassment and abuse. I had several goals in mind when developing and writing the story, as I explain in this 2-minute clip from a longer reading I did on July 28, 2020, in a virtual event sponsored by the Worcester County Poetry Association and The Thirsty Lab in Princeton, Mass.
