Valerie Nieman is a fellow Old Stater and a celebrated novelist whose work spans the writing gamut from kidlit on up to adult literature. She has won an Eric Hoffer Award, was a Pushcart Prize finalist, was a runner-up for the Brockman-Campbell Book Prize, and was a NC Arts Council Poetry Fellow. Her work is authentic, eclectic, real, and innovative, and I fully expect that some day soon she’ll be rightfully recognized as one of the leading voices in our current literary world. That’s why I was floored by the kind words she shared with me (at left) after reading an ARC of my upcoming young adult novel, ON THE WAY TO BIRDLAND.
I hope you’ll pick up copies of Valerie’s latest novels, TO THE BONES and BACKWATER (YA from Fitzroy Books/2022).
And I hope you’ll pre order a copy of ON THE WAY TO BIRDLAND from your local indie bookstore through the wonders of BOOKSHOP.
