My Response to Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance

Hillbilly Elegy, HarperCollins Publishing, 2016

Did Zedwynne Skinner bring you here?

Zedwynne Grace Skinner is the main character in what I hope will be my debut novel, Catching Fireflies. She's a disenchanted young woman, bitter and angry about a past she can't change. 

My agent will be sending Zedwynne out to editors soon. Wish us luck!
