I am so pleased and excited to announce the upcoming launch (April, 2016 in Canada, May 2016 in the US) of my new novel, The Mercy Journals. I spent ten years of my life, five or six days a week, working on this very slim novel. To the best of my ability, I built it like a cathedral, stone by stone, and wondered if I'd finish it in my lifetime. In my mind, it's a novel for right now, at this pivotal watershed moment in human history and human evolution.
It's strange being a writer sometimes - well, strange a lot of the time. The borders between reality and words become as porous as I believe they are for philosophers. When in life I'm not getting the ending I want, I mean seriously not getting the ending I want, the impulse to rewrite and rewrite until I find the right ending is irrepressible, nightmarish.
