what I write

The Kiss-Off is a historical novel about a waitress in a small town in 1931. Two bank robbers arrive in town to hide after a job that went wrong, and she becomes caught in a love triangle with one of the bank robbers and an emotionally disturbed former flame. Add in bootleggers, old rivalries, and the economic pressures of the Depression, and watch as this small town explodes.

*In gangster slang, “the kiss-off” is the final goodbye before the breakup of a relationship, exile, or death.
