Remaining Aileen by Autumn Lindsey

When Aileen wakes up after a plane crash, she's happy to be alive. But as she learns the dark truth behind her survival, she realizes it might cost her everything she wanted to live for. Part vampire story, part journey through the self, Remaining Aileen touches on the bittersweet struggle many women face as they try to find themselves after motherhood.

For more information, please visit Autumn's website.

Hear Us Roar! Debut Author Podcasts

Meet WFWA member Marlene Adelstein. For the last eighteen years, Marlene has worked as a freelance book editor as well as writer. These days, she can often be found walking local trails looking for abandoned birds' nests or at home hand-sewing little boxes out of tree bark. She is partial to chocolate labs and in particular hers, a super friendly, good-natured girl named Honey. She lives in the beautiful Hudson Valley, in a small town filled with artists, where she loves to listen to the noise of the birds.

Learn more about Marlene on her website.
