{behold, I am interviewed}

There were so many times, during the writing of this novel, when I turned to a note I had written myself, and reminded myself of why I was doing this. There were so many times when my own fears of my own inadequacies in dealing with the subject matter just rose up to overwhelm me. And then I remembered – love is stronger than fear… and if all I was afraid of was exploring and reinforcing the idea that it’s okay to truly love, then I needed a reality check.

Look, it’s a little weird to be quoting myself, so please, go and read the interview. Meanwhile, think nice thoughts of me: I am home and eating avocados. And watermelon. At almost every meal.

  1. Hooray to the interview and avocadoes! I saw the print version of the Kirkus review of Happy Families earlier this week (I’m always behind on Kirkus, as I am at the end of the routing list at the library), and I did a little cheer for you then, too. I should finally get some time to read the book myself this weekend, and I am really looking forward to it.
