"2017 is unfolding according to plan. I’m proud of myself. Exorcising my demons is part of it. Facing up to the ghosts of past selves. Turning it into story, events that happened to me,yes, but a different me, my fteen-year-old self, my twenty-six-year-old self, my forty-year-old self. I’m not those girls, those women, anymore.
It is time to forgive them, to forgive myself, and to accept their stories, my stories, for what they are. Things that happened a long, long time ago, to a different me." from Gray Is The New Black, forthcoming June 2019 from Otis Books
