The Novel In Progress

Please Don’t Take My Kidneys: An American Couchsurfing Adventure is the nonfiction tale of a crowd-sourced two-month-long solo road trip across America. Think Bill Bryson meets Jack Kerouac–but with more sex.

Join your author as she couchsurfs with friends, family, and far too many strange men found through OKCupid. In between bizarre and occasionally scary adventures, she explores sexual identity, the cultural shaping of cities, self-empowerment, perception of history, media impact on stereotype construction, and not getting eaten by bears.
