About my book

Adventures of a Metalhead Librarian: A Rock n’ Roll Memoir

“A rebellious and anxious Ohio girl moves to Los Angeles to live out her heavy-metal dreams on the Sunset Strip, only to find out she doesn’t have the heart for it after all.”

This is a book about Los Angeles in 1990, the metal scene, and working at Metal Blade Records. Rock stars. Loud guitars. Big concerts. Grunge. Fun.

This is also a book about magic, resilience, and survival. It’s a book about taking chances. About hard choices and following your heart. It’s a book about hope, failure, and rebirth. It’s a book about missing my dad and how it affected my relationship with men. It’s a book about a really special time and place for us metalheads. And, it’s a book about growing up, starting over, and finding my way in the world.

I think I succeeded, mostly.

I am currently seeking agent representation for my manuscript.
