This post is just to convey big congratulations to my friend, Lisa McKay
I met Lisa in Pasadena last year when a mutual friend turned to us both and said, "Ah, my 2 favorite Lisas!" (Nice one, Scott.) We just kind of "got" each other and that was that.
Anyway, Lisa is a bright one and I am so pleased for her that her debut novel, which only just came out, has already gone to re-print and is now being translated into Dutch and Russian.
My Hands tells the story of a group of teens who take a summer mission trip to Indonesia and get caught up in a tragedy of violence between the Muslim and Christian communities on a small island there.
Well done, Lisa! And would you get over here for a visit already??
