"We all undergo reinvention throughout our lives, from childhood to adulthood,
from individuals to spouses and parents, and each time we change careers.
Now more than ever it seems people are trying to find fulfillment,
to grasp the parts of their lives that bring meaning and joy.
This is the part of life that draws me in most.
This is the part of life that I try to capture on paper:
people changing their lives, recreating themselves, finding meaning in their personal experiences.
As I personally try to figure out my course in life,
I am drawn ever more to creating characters who are able to overcome obstacles
as they reinvent who they are and who they want to be.
The result, I hope, is characters to whom readers can relate."
