my novel Eleven Sundays.
My main character, Annie, is twenty-five and facing the quarter-life crisis. This sometimes over-achiever transitions from her dedicated office routine. She struggles with unpredictable life obstacles which give her opportunity and permission to change course.
New Adult Fiction is an interesting category of literature, not dictated by genre, but more about the emotion and mind-space as we evolve through the formative adult years.
"Protagonists generally fall between the ages of eighteen and twenty-six, though exceptions may apply. NA characters are often portrayed experiencing: college, living away from home for the first time, military deployment, apprenticeships, a first steady job, a first serious relationship, etc.
Other terms for NA include: Upper YA, Crossover Fiction, and Mature YA. "

"across San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge away from her big city problems. In fog-capped Drake’s Valley where explorers trekked before her, a mysterious souplady, a green-eyed cat, and three curious boys looking for bones influence her to face up to a changed future."
