El Nido (Novel), San Francisco Bay Area, CA
In El Nido, the fates of four families collide, illuminating the nature of territory, predators and prey, surveillance and suburbia.
“I’ve always tried to illuminate untold stories, hoping to inspire a change in thinking and a change in action, and to bridge divides.”
