Hemingway Point - Nora Carroll

My name is Nora Carroll. I'm 16 years old and I'm a sophomore in high school. Following in my mother's footsteps, I began writing at a very young age. I have always been fascinated with words and stories. I love to read and to write (obviously).  Hemingway Point is my first novel.

Product description:
When Jess spends the summer in her late grandmother's rambling Victorian summer cottage, she uncovers heart-rending mysteries and lost love. It has been seventeen years since Jess has last visited the elite lakefront summer club where she had spent the summers of her youth. Now, she returns with her photographer boyfriend who wants to write an article about the distinctive old house. Sifting through old letters and pictures she finds in a hidden trunk, Jess unravels long-hidden family secrets. Including, just maybe, the secret to her own heart. In this vivid, cinematic debut, Nora Carroll tells the story of love lost and found in lyrical and evocative language that touches the heart.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
Hemingway Point is an engrossing and intricate story. It's told from two different perspectives, shifting back and forth in time. It is a unique story that is sure to interest any reader.

Q: Why did you go indie?
As a 16 year old, it's hard to get started in the wide world of publishing. With progressing technology, there are new and exciting ways for an up and coming writer to get his or her material out to the public. It was really liberating for me as a high school student to be able to take a manuscript, that would otherwise be sitting on my hard drive, and make it available for purchase on Kindle.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
My favorite authors in my genre would probably be Anita Shreve and Jodi Picoult. Outside of my genre, I love John Green, Kazuo Ishiguro, Laurie Halse Anderson, and many many others.
