Here's a "Twitter Interview" I did:
What’s your favorite part of the book?
Probably the last chapter, which moves between a beach in SE Sicily and Birmingham. It sums it all up – all of it – the loss and the hope.Was writing therapeutic for you or did it reopen wounds and make grieving harder?
Both. Writing,even just for myself, is THE way I process reality. But 2 years of rewriting also meant constantly revisiting painful moments.
