I became interested in life after tragic events and how the victim copes long after the investigators and media have cleared the scene. I began researching about victims and a lot of the information I found most helpful and powerful were the stories of rape victims.

I knew that I wanted to tell Rachel's story because it wasn't something I've read in a book before. We see a lot of details about rape stories and this was a side I wanted to tell.

Hell, it’s not even a literary grand slam or in my opinion, developed to its full potential, but it does make you smile. And at the end of the day isn’t that what we’re all striving for. In the real world I spend most of my day arguing circles around claims... Read more of this blog post »
