I began writing this novel in 2013. I had long been frustrated by the handling of my own diagnosis of Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH syndrome) at the age of fifteen. I struggled with it for years. I ignored it for longer. [Insert years of depression, suicidal thoughts, feelings of inadequacy/jealousy/rage/rage/rage] here. I won’t bore you with the details. I wrote 200K+ words in a novel that has been ripped up, smashed back together, and pared down to a final product that I am proud of. If that doesn’t say frustration nothing will.
This isn’t based on a true story. My life, for the most part, is too boring to be recounted in a book, and I’ll let Changed speak for itself. The tentative release date will be August 1st. Hopefully by then I will have all my ducks in a row. I’ll be creating links for pre orders, and try to figure out Amazon’s platform as well as others.
To all the girls out there dealing with this condition: It does get better. You are strong, and you are NOT alone. You are one in five thousand.
