Algonquin Young Readers
Algonquin Young Readers will be publishing my YA novel, SOMEBODY UP THERE HATES YOU, in September 2013.
"Seamon's use of setting and description is masterly. Her love of language is obvious, and anyone who likes to see language used well and strikingly will re-read some passages in the book. No wonder her stories have been widely published, anthologized and awarded prizes. "

On September 3, 2013, my young adult novel, SOMEBODY UP THERE HATES YOU, will come out as one of the books in the Algonquin Books' new Young Readers line. The novel has received starred advance reviews from Kirkus Reviews and Publishers Weekly.
In January 2013, my second collection of short stories, CORPOREALITY, came out from Able Muse Press.
My mystery novel, FLESH, came out in Spring 2005 and my first collection of stories, BODY WORK, in 2000.
SOMEBODY UP THERE HATES YOU is "Funny, harrowing, and wildly profane...It had me crying with laughter on one page and then just plain crying on another." --Will Schwalbe, author of THE END OF YOUR LIFE BOOK CLUB.
BODY WORK is "a sexy, edgy collection of stories about women on the brink. There isn't a coward or a victim in the bunch."
--Doug Glover, author of Bad News of the Heart, Elle, 16 Categories of Desire, The Life and Times of Captain N, and other books.
