When I'm not teaching eighth grade English (since 1995), I write novels. One of them is finally ready to put on skin and jump onto your bookshelf.
Edith Wharton, Lois Lowry, Robert Olen Butler, T. S. Eliot
Bum-bye is a literary fiction novel about Mahina, a plucky homeless girl who works at Disneyland, the so-called “Happiest Place on Earth.” The only constant in her wild ride of a life is the resonant voice of her recently dead mother—a displaced Portuguese-Hawaiian military wife, who was forced to adapt to the rat race of Southern "Calimania." The struggle to find food, shelter, and sanity ultimately leaves Mahina with two choices, and the choice she makes finally sets her free.
