Synopsis: Overcome by the noise in her head, aspiring young artist Veda can t loosen her grip from anything beyond her control. A hesitant and sometimes misguided journey to develop her talent for visual art eventually opens Veda s passage to self-acceptance and maturity. In these 15 stories, you ll meet Veda at both her best and sometimes most unlikable worst: making a home for a pet bird that plucks its feathers, undressing before her classmates just moments after the fall of the World Trade Center, and imagining nuclear disasters while driving on the Garden State Parkway. Readers will also find bonus material that includes:

15 color photographs
16th crowdsourced story
Book club discussion questions
Creative writing exercises
Veda's Guide to a Creative Life

When she s not writing or teaching, Laryssa likes to try new vegan recipes and play with her miniature dachshund Charlotte. Laryssa wrote the majority of The Prescribed Burn while pursuing her MFA at the University of Maryland. While at Maryland, Laryssa was lucky enough to work with professors like Howard Norman, Merrill Feitell, and Maud Casey.
