“We all start out our lives as a beautiful rose but with each breach of our personal ethics we start to slip down the thorny stem.” Max Smithson, Ethics Professor Character – Indiscretion Highway
I just entered the last keystroke for my 2019 novel Indiscretion Highway. This has been a fun book to write—fun knowing so much more about the process and my own style. Certainly, it was the most complicated novel I have written. I have mixed feelings–pride to have completed the first draft and little sad. Already I miss the daily hunt for propositions and storylines, especially the creative intensity of coming up with the right ending. My editor calls it exquisite torture.
