I set TNC in the nineties because I didn't want to have technology as character. It was so important for me to give Nora and Margaret a voice—they'd been silenced for so long, that I wanted to invite readers into the theater without any tech distractions. Setting TNC in the 90's allowed me to also place Maeve in a time (1963) when there was very little therapeutic support—abuse, any abuse just wasn’t talked about...and without support Maeve continued to believe that the child was at fault, the child must be doing something provocative to entice the father—which became another layer of betrayal for Nora to cope with. Hope this helps—Anna(less)

When I see or hear or experience something viscerally, I feel an intense urge to write about it, look more closely at it, turn it over and peer underneath it, maybe shake it, sometimes deconstruct it and create something new. Also, it’s a way to not be silenced, to break silences. To give voice to issues I care deeply about.

Hope

Hey, I know things are hard right now, but it’s vital we choose hope over fear. Stand shoulder to shoulder with it. Because fear constricts. Makes us tight. Feeds more fear. Divides, disparages, denigrates. Erodes health. Erodes good decision making. Makes us stuck. Closes us down at time when our power is needed more than ever to come up with new solutions and stand up for what we believe. Hope i Read more of this blog post »

“She’s never understood the arbitrary nature of God, the logic behind “some are blessed and some are damned,” hates when people exclaim, “I’m so blessed!” every time they get a parking spot or survive cancer, as if people who can’t find a parking spot or die from cancer aren’t blessed and should work harder to earn God’s favor and protection.”
