It was her third novel, Fat Angie that garnered the American Library Association’s Stonewall Award, was a Lambda Literary Finalist and a Choose to Read Ohio book. Fat Angie was also the foundation for a unique book tour to empower at-risk youth via writing and discussion and the catalyst for the feature documentary At-Risk Summer. From that experience, she co-founded a non-profit to bridge the gap between at-risk youth and artists called Never Counted Out.

Currently, she is completing the feature documentary, A Cultural of Silence for GLSEN Cincinnati, writing two novels and Fat Angie: Rebel Girl Revolution in early 2019.
