What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The National Opioid Epidemic goes on, gets worse, this year. I decided to write a "what if" novel to bring public awareness to the matter. It could happen to you.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I have lived in the heart of the Florida Citrus Belt for half a century. I selected personalities, habits, accents, appearances, likes and love, and placed these in my imagined characters.
Even the old-timers, as they probably did each day, noted it as if it was a signal, a whistle only they heard, perhaps a distant train passing at the same time each evening. It was as if the land was being wrestled from Man, who was granted its use during the day, and given back to the savannahs for the night.
The alarming quiet spread across the flushed-out crowns of dark, waxy green in endless columns that stood like armies, rod-still in gray and silvery helmets, assembled for night watch. The first thready smoke of night fog wove between the rows and took the dust, while the pastel bath of pink washed over the golden trees again.
