First Time Mom
When all is said and done, the weather and love are the two elements about which one can never be sure.
Among men and women, those in love do not always announce themselves with declarations and vows. But they are the ones who weep when you're gone. Who miss you every single night, especially when the sky is so deep and beautiful, and the ground so very cold.
You can try to take sorrow and make it into something enduring, meaningful and beautiful. I always feel guilty that this is my job, that I get to do this.

First Time Mom quotes
It was a great escape for me and it was a way to take a break from what was going on in my own world, to go into another world.

I'm much faster now. When you only have a certain amount of time to write, after a while you learn to use your time well or you stop writing.
I think we are bound to, and by, nature. We may want to deny this connection and try to believe we control the external world, but every time there's a snowstorm or drought, we know our fate is tied to the world around us.
I think secrets often come out. I spoke to a friend who is a therapist and I asked her if there were people who came to her and admitted to doing horrible things and she said, 'More than you know.'
I think love is a huge factor in fiction and in real life. Is there a risk? Always. In fiction and in life.
I think growing up is difficult and it's a process that I'm always interested in, with kids and adults, they are often on two different universes.
I really feel like the gift is also the curse. It's always half-and-half. Whatever brings you the most joy will also probably bring you the most pain. Always a price to pay.
I never see a novel as a film while I'm writing it. Mostly because novels and films are so different, and I'm such an internal novelist.
I never plot out my novels in terms of the tone of the book. Hopefully, once a story is begun it reveals itself.
I feel more influenced in my own work by dreams than I do by other writers' works in a way. Or by popular culture, movies - what else is there to write about than love and loss?
