I’ve always been fascinated with Michelangelo’s conviction that the finished statue already existed within the block of marble. All he had to do was chip away and find it. What I believe, or make myself believe, is that if an image emerges and I cannot quit thinking about it, then the whole novel already exists, either in my subconscious or somewhere out in the universe ..."

My story interweaves with many others’, sometimes in a beautiful way, other times with conflict and painful consequences. So …
