Student Anna Lefler has just published her debut novel Preschooled (Full Fathom Five, October 2015). Anna describes it as “a comic novel about an unsuspecting mom, a scruffy dad, and a perennially cranky headmistress who must each tackle an unexpected personal crisis while struggling to play nice in a snooty, dysfunctional Santa Monica preschool.”

Anna completed several mentorships with Lynn Hightower, who helped her take her work to the next level. “Lynn’s mentorship fundamentally changed my approach to long-form fiction. Her seasoned guidance was invaluable in shaping my draft into a professional-grade manuscript that was ready for the marketplace.”

Congratulations, Anna!
