My first novel, The River in Winter, was published in 2009. I'm working on my second novel, The Wide Night Sky. I live in South Carolina with my partner and our cranky Jack Russell terrier. I like cake. Pancakes, too. Pancakes are good.
What is it in us that lives in the past and longs for the future, or lives in the future and longs for the past? And what does it matter when light enters the room where a child sleeps and the waking mother, opening her eyes, wishes more than anything to be unwakened by what she cannot name?– Mark Strand, from “No Words Can Describe It” (via awritersruminations)
Wow. I will never get tired of seeing our galaxy in this way. Awe-inspiring is an understatement.
