Birds of Paradise


Available Everywhere Books are Sold! 


Hollywood in the 1980s. The neon and synthesizers harken to days of no rules, Bartles and Jaymes wine coolers, and breaking curfew. It was a time of ultimate decadence and excess. However, it was also a time of immeasurable loss…


Seventeen-year-old Tate is no stranger to loss. She feels most at home breaking into the cemetery and sitting beside her mother’s grave so they can have picnics together. But when she meets Simonne, it challenges everything Tate believes about people and relationships. This woman not only intrigues her, but tests the very limits of her love and desire.


Suspicious of Simonne’s motivations, Tate's lifelong best friend, Taylor, grows weary of watching the rollercoaster relationship and tries repeatedly to reason with her, but his focus shifts suddenly when he discovers he has a life-threatening disease.


Over the years, Tate must find a way to navigate the many phases of her love affair with Simonne, while learning how to be a better friend to Taylor in his time of ultimate need. Gradually, she discovers that life isn’t love or loss, but a heartbreakingly beautiful mixture of both.


** This is a 10-year anniversary edition, updated, edited, and with a new cover.
