I suppose I write about love and romance because they are a mystery to me. No doubt that sounds paradoxical. But relationships have long bemused me: Why do people react to me the way they do? What do they feel? What do I feel?
So I explore these questions through fictional persons, imagining their thoughts and emotions, their actions and reactions, and the effects caused by beliefs and assumptions. And I wonder if readers will take from my stories a new perspective of their own relationships.
Do you learn how to deal with social situations from the interactions of fictional characters?
