I'm also fascinated by how people define their personal nesting grounds, how they create physical comfort and private space or fail at this. When I write home design articles, people open up when talking about their living spaces. Check out my blog: Confessions of a Hermit Crab for more essays and photos on this subject.
Most of us harbor secrets, consciously or unconsciously. Fiction is one way to shine light on these emotional caves we all have inside us.
And, then, there's my long-standing interest in health that comes from my early experience with a life-threatening illness, and as a recipient of an experimental bone marrow transplant (I'm talking late '70s here). I was one of the first. My story, Recovery, was inspired by this transformative event and won Redbook's second prize in fiction.
Got a question? Don't hesitate to get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.
Praise for Night Swim
