OCD Love Story is her first novel. Find out more at coreyannhaydu.com.
Debut novelist Haydu doesn’t sugarcoat the difficulties of OCD or reduce her characters to a symptom list. Bea and Beck, who readers see through Bea’s sympathetic and knowing eyes, get worse and better not according to a predetermined outline but according to their individual trajectories. That they do so while trying to build a relationship with someone who’s seen them as they really are, to move past shame into intimacy, makes the story that much more touching.
Publishers Weekly, starred review on OCD Love Story
and i'm glad her world is populated with all kinds of people doing all kinds of jobs.
I had to relearn fifth grade science to do it, but I'm so happy I wrote a female character who is passionate about science.
Now there's a male nurse and an incredible female science teacher and a science loving girl telling a story about her best friend.
