The Trophy Wife

While I write in a variety of forms, my primary identity as a writer is that of a novelist. My current project is The Trophy Wife, a marriage of young adult fantasy and romantic satire.

Twenty-three-year-old Pri is a formerly ambitious, jaded milennial who has recently retired from a dancing career and is looking for a new profession. When she meets James, the handsome CFO at the financial firm where she temps, Pri finds a new opportunity.

After a hasty love affair, Pri marries James and finds herself a career wife, complete with end-of-year bonuses and assignments involving the mysterious, dancing servants. Soon Pri is failing at her new “job” and feeling cooped up in the house, until she discovers a dumbwaiter that is a portal to another world.

She then learns that nothing is what it seems—the servants are an exploited people, their dance is a language, and James is more than her charming better-half.

All Pri wanted was to be the best trophy wife, but now she finds herself caught in a battle for freedom—for an enslaved people, and for herself.
