About Louisiana Catch:
In Louisiana Catch, a grieving daughter and abuse survivor must summon the courage to run a feminist conference, trust a man she meets over the internet, and escape a catfishing stalker to find her power. Louisiana Catch is an emotionally immersive novel about identity, shame, and who we project ourselves to be in the world. It’s a book about the main character’s unreliable instincts and her ongoing battle to determine whom to place her trust in as she and others shed layers of their identities.
