What's the buzz?

Get it? Bee? Buzz?


Judy Merrill Larsen, author of All the Numbers, read a galley of Orange Mint and Honey and gave me quite a compliment:

“In Orange Mint and Honey, Brice deftly shows the importance and joy of understanding our past and not only forgiving those who hurt us, but loving them in spite of that hurt. We see Shay on her journey to discovering who she is and all that she can be--even when she's not sure she's ready to meet the person she's about to become. Readers of Terry McMillan and Bebe Moore Campbell will find a new writer to watch.” - Judy Merrill Larsen, author of All the Numbers (also a Ballantine Reader's Circle book!)

Wow, Judy! I'm blown away to be compared to these writers! Thanks so much!!
