Author’s statement
Perhaps every novel contains biographical elements. We suffer the slings and arrows of life, collect insights and forebodings from childhood, fall in love, marry, sometimes divorce, have children, work, and play. All of which becomes a bundle of notions, ideals, contradictions, sorrows, and knowledge that feeds into how open or slanted we view the world. I believe, in some way, that these momentous events, even when not consciously remembered, affect our character. Fiction is not real life, but real life made up—the emotions are still there, the lessons still learned.
