A Novel-In-Progress


An elegiac tale of old bones breaking free. Told for the preservation of roots and for the honoring of children. 


Inspired by a "disputed" series of events unearthed at abbey sites and church-run workhouses for unwed mothers: mass graves containing the countless remains of undocumented children.


Re-envisioned, the dead given voice.
