Meet Author Heather Cumiskey

November 10 @ 7:00 pm

Join us for the celebration of the publication of Heather Cumiskey’s YA novel, I Like You Like This. In 1984 Connecticut, sixteen-year-old Hannah Zandana feels cursed: She has wild, uncontrollable hair and a horrid complexion that she compulsively picks, and as if that weren’t bad enough, her emotionally unavailable parents mercilessly ridicule her appearance and verbally shame her. Wanting to change her pathetic life, Hannah attempts to impress a group of popular girls—an ill-fated effort, except that she captures the attention of Deacon, a handsome and mysterious boy who also happens to be her school’s resident drug dealer. Suddenly, Hannah’s life takes an unexpected detour into Deacon’s dangerous and seductive world—but when her relationship and family unravel around her, she is forced to reexamine what she believes about herself and the people she trusts the most. Perfect for fans of Ellen Hopkins and Jay Asher, I Like You Like This is a poignant young adult read about addiction, sexuality, peer pressure, and first love. Originally from Long Island, Heather Cumiskey is the daughter of a television veteran and a fearless homemaker. She received her Bachelor of Arts in English at State University of New York at Albany where she also studied dance and choreography. For more than two decades, she has worked as an advertising and marketing copywriter. When she’s not writing, she lends her legs, lungs, and heart in helping special needs athletes compete in mainstream races. Heather currently lives in Maryland with her husband and three sons. I Like You Like This is her debut novel. Connect with her at heathercumiskey.com.
