I never thought I would write one novel, much less have completed my sixth one. The first book, What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day, came about because I had an idea for a story that wouldn’t fit into the structure a play requires. It was a very different process for me creatively, but I enjoyed it and was eager to try it again. At the time, I had no idea that some of the characters would stay with me for the next ten years! Aretha Hargrove is first introduced in What Looks Like Crazy when she’s only sixteen. She appears in Seen It All and Done the Rest, as a woman of twenty-six, recently divorced and struggling to balance her artistic life and the responsibilities of motherhood. She has grown up in the pages of these books!
