“…Piñata Moon deftly explores the complex issues of teen suicide and the effects it can have on the people it leaves behind. Seen through the lens of a Tucson teenager, Anderson’s narrative considers the value of life and its potential, as well as the questions left unanswered after the sudden, jarring absence of a loved one. Partly an ode to the desert landscape, the striking imagery and poetic language serves as a warm background for a cold subject, creating a juxtaposition that fuels the piecemeal story toward a daring conclusion that pushes the reader into existential reflection. Edgy, inventive, and sincere, Anderson gives the reader a new look at an old medium, creating a unique experience that keeps hold of the reader long after the last page has been turned.”
I’m looking to collaborate with publishers to create engaging books for readers in kindergarten through high school. I also love creating educational programs/art projects and giving workshops.
Please let me know if you want to work on a project together.
