Thames River Press Signs Three Novel Contract with Stephanie Smith

Date:  Friday 13th April 2012

Press Release Date:  Friday 13th April 2012

Stephanie A. Smith, a novelist, short story writer and an essayist, signs a three-title contract with Thames River Press. The three novels, War-paintBaby Rocket and Content Burns are intertwined by love and friendship, and deal with contemporary women who are struggling to balance art, love, illness and trauma. War-paint is about three women painters who must come to terms with imminent mortality and artistic frustrations; Baby Rocket is the story of an abandoned, adopted child, who, as an adult, must heal these ruptures in her past, and Content Burns follows two women in the same family separated by three centuries, both of whom survive historical trauma: the massacre of the Pequot tribe in 1634 and the loss of the Twin Towers on 9/11. Warpaint, Baby Rocket and Content Burns represent a true exploration of women's and children's emotional strains. Stephanie A. Smith is the author of several previously published books: Household Words (Minnesota) Conceived By Liberty: Maternal Figures and 19th-Century American Literature (Cornell), Other Nature (MacMillan) Snow-Eyes and The-Boy-Who-Was-Thrown-Away (Atheneum). She has now moved into literary fiction to explore serious issues of especial interest to women.
