I have been receiving a lot of really wonderful feedback about Driftwood. I am often overwhelmed by the way the book resonates with readers who contact me. It is a real privilege to have such random human connection with strangers. Lovely, in fact.
With these messages come many questions. I will try to answer some of them here:
Are the characters based on people you know?
Not exactly. More like composites or just totally made up. I watch people and eavesdrop far too much. No one is safe.
Do you have a literary agent?
Who has the film rights to the book?
Me. Just me.
Are you working on another novel?
Yes, and it is going to be incredible. I love it already and the first draft isn’t even near done.
Is your next book a continuation of Driftwood?
Not at all. That was self-contained. Onward.
What is your next novel about?
You’ll have to wait and see.
Can I turn my essay in late?
No late papers are accepted. Stop asking. (That one was for my students.)
