Naturally, she said yes... but only if she could co-author with me, since we've worked together on her other books and I was closer to the experience than she is, having a child in public school.

THE SOULS OF HER FEET: I had already been working on this project for many years, mostly in the form of a musical. The idea for a real-world, modern-day, down-to-earth Cinderella actually came to me in a dream when I was a young woman. There's a comic transcript of this dream in my graphic novel collection, THE REASON SHE LEFT.(less)

“Turning her body slightly to the left, he gently bends her knee, breaking eye contact to lick her slowly, from Venice to Trieste—then down the Croatian Coast, the length of Serenissima.”
Kristen Caven, The Vesuvian Affair

“Listen,” whispers Dario. “How still it is.” They stand under a darkened archway, the only sound a whispered squeak where docked gondolas rub against each other. Negative ions from the lapping water release serotonin, and the brains of these two flood with the nourishment of each other’s breath, each other’s chi.”

“It’s a wonderful body,” he’d whispered the next morning while she was still asleep. Not even the blue silk Loretta Caponi pajamas he’d brought back for her from Florence could disguise its lumpiness. But it was so gorgeously strong. She almost never got sick. She could outswim riptides and ski double diamonds. And even when a wave scraped her into the sand or a patch of ice threw her to the ground, she rarely bruised. He loved that body for taking care of her, for sheltering the one thing he couldn’t live without.”
Tanya Egan Gibson, How to Buy a Love of Reading

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
