Hello! I’m Mindy! I write, I sing, I do comedy!
My debut Young Adult novel
THE SYMPTOMS OF MY INSANITY
comes out in April 2013 DIAL(Penguin)
“It’s kind of crazy how you can pay so much attention to yourself and still not see a thing.”
A laugh-out-loud, bittersweet debut full of wit, wisdom, heart, and one hilarious, unforgettable heroine.
Izzy is a hypochondriac with enormous boobs that won’t stop growing, a mother with a rare disease who’s hiding something, a best friend who appears to have undergone a personality transplant, and a date with an out-of-her-league athlete who just spilled Gatorade all over her. Yes, Izzy Skymen has a hectic life. But what Izzy doesn’t realize is that these are only minor symptoms of life’s insanity. When she discovers the people she trusts most are withholding from her the biggest secrets, things are about to get epic—or is it epidemic?
“A female Woody Allen for the teenage set”
