Fresh out of a rigorous PhD program, Grace embarks on a celebratory Vegas trip with her best friends. This leads her on a wild adventure spanning from Portland to New York City to Florida to discover her mystery bride and, ultimately, herself. Honey Girl has all the markings of a traditional coming-of-age story: the sometimes awkward, sometimes joyous thrill of growing up, a swoon-worthy romance, aching loneliness, hilarious dialogue, a cast of imperfect friends, and well-meaning family members. The novel is simultaneously a quiet exploration of identity as well as an explosion of queer love and growth. One of my favorite things about the novel is the wide, diverse cast of secondary characters. What is your process for crafting so many different personalities and creating believable friend groups?
