You Shouldn't Worry About the Frogs (Paperback)
I began each story in this debut collection with a question: where will it take me? Before I knew it, the destination became irrelevant as the journey was engrossing. The straightforward delivery accentuated the ordinary whilst the magical realism transpired and left me pondering. [Blanca]— From You Shouldn't Worry About the Frogs
Amidst the sprawling plains of the Midwest, a young woman walks through a cornfield to find a bus stop. A chicken-line worker becomes involved in a missing persons investigation. A small town adopts a strange new custom and a magician puts on a show. Meanwhile on the coast, hikers are going missing and something's lurking out in the woods. Routine, ritual, and habit turn against those they are meant to serve. When the familiar is called into question, there will be frogs. Tales of disappearance, self-fulfilling prophecies, and ghostly revenge weave together in You Shouldn't Worry About the Frogs.
