In between I wrote two other manuscripts and a handful of short stories. I'd polish, get feedback, let it sit for a year or more, and come back to it. At one point it was a whopping 115,000 words and now is approximately 95,000. Thank you so much for the question and interest!(less)

The practical answer is I go back and reread, asking myself what the possibilities are based on what has happened in the story thus far and honing in on how the emotional state of mind of the characters might influence their actions. Beyond that, I find having an outline helps me stay on course. I don't write with a super detailed outline, but knowing where I need to move the story next helps.(less)

I have often been asked how I got the idea for Degrees of Love and why I would write a novel that deals with infidelity. Answering the first question is easy. There was a period in my life when I was traveling three to five days per week for work. During a period of particularly grueling back-to-back travel, the idea for the story came to me while I watched women jetting through LAX. There was... Read more of this blog post »

The Divorce Party by Laura Dave
"The Divorce Party is one of the most oddly moving books I've read in a long time. Since I finished reading it, I have been trying to sort out what, exactly, makes it work so well. Certainly, it captures the emotions of complex people in complex re..." Read more of this review »

“As long as I had love, I would never be completely alone." --Degrees of Love”
Lisa Slabach

“We do not know our own souls, let alone the souls of others. Human beings do not go hand in hand the whole stretch of the way. There is a virgin forest in each; a snowfield where even the print of birds' feet is unknown. Here we go alone, and like it better so. Always to have sympathy, always to be accompanied, always to be understood would be intolerable.”
Virginia Woolf, On Being Ill
