Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I began writing when I was ten years old, during a prescribed immobility due to a case of mononucleosis. Finding school mundane and boring, I would continue to escape reality by writing throughout my childhood, adolescence, and into early adulthood.
What's the story behind your latest book?
There are many stories that are woven into The Great Imitator. Like many novels, the personal is interwoven with the projections from experience. But the motivation to write this story came from the last three years of my life in Memphis, some of the personal accounts that were shared with me, and the observations about culture and shame that were revealed to me.

The Great Imitator is a haunting account of a family tortured by the unsolved disappearance of a much-adored mother, an accused father never absolved for her presumed death, and a son and daughter who have avoided disillusionment at any cost to maintain sanity. Cast into a chaotic sequence of events, the family is left with just one question: who would you become if you risked telling the truth?
