What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
It just had to come out. I have been writing for almost 20 years and this story was always in there trying to get out. I kept returning to it but then putting it back down to write other things, but it persisted and slowly pieced itself together from a elements rising in my subconscious. It was without a doubt a labour of love.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters emerged in my mind usually as amalgams of people and personas I have come across in life. The characters moreso represent approaches to life that seem to recur in people.
I lay back in the pergola. My mind dull, numb, couched in a haze to the outward world. I breathed deep the evening, the hedges … the swaying trees … the drenched grass. A gentle wind stirred the world. Leaves dangled an inch or two from my face and a great blackness expanded overhead. I could see time stretch out before me, coming into view as the slow curve of a great arc, an arc of fate and realisation, an arc that illuminates and obscures in one great unending movement, impending yet never ending, a never-arriving horizon, streaming on, hurtling on, amaranthine. It was like the plane of a great parabola, the trajectory of all trajectories speeding toward an uncharted singularity. I imagined slipping faster and faster forward, faster and faster toward some end, an unknown end, accelerating as the teeth of time bite unforgiving and irreversible into place. I saw it stretch out before me; the systematic chaos of fate, an elaborate sequence, the culmination of choice and chance curving ahead, moving me toward some end, holding out all I might want – all I had to do was reach out and take it. I felt sure and certain in that moment. Sure and certain, and then I feel that comfort passing, a single moment dissolving away, and like that it evaporates into the plain night air.
