What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Creating stories based on life experiences, I sought appeal to readers who yearn to escape to an earlier time of innocence and discovery and who can identify with either the 1950s or the small town.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Characters combine qualities of persons I admire and persons I have known. Characters were also developed to be interesting and intriguing to the reader and somewhat unpredictable. I targeted the development of values.
"Everything of substance in my world was family. Now there was not a shred of family for me to hold onto. I had dug and questioned and obsessed and now I had it out in the open–the ugly truth. Family meant nothing. The Chastain family was gone in the twinkling of an eye. All my cherished memories of my childhood and who I was as a person had been obliterated in those five words."
