Announcement: new novel coming soon!!

We are excited to announce that The Phlox is knee-deep in revising her next novel, which is (shockingly) yet to have a title. We are excited to provide the public with more details shortly.

It is a realist, contemporary story that explores family relationships, relationship to the natural environment, vulnerability and the body, death, trauma, and strength. The Phlox was inspired by such archetypal stories as Cupid and Psyche, which show a traditional ‘maiden’ archetype interacting with Eros and Thanatos energies and finding her personal power, as well as contemporary coming of age movies such as Juno, Ladybird, or On Chesil Beach (an adaptation from an Ian McEwan novel) that explore the significance of quiet, individual stories with a close focus.
