“The water. The lake. It flows through our veins, and there's nothing we can do about it… It's like venom.”
Karen Katchur, The Secrets of Lake Road

“There was something about this place that brought out the best and worst in you, pushing you to extremes.”
Karen Katchur, The Secrets of Lake Road

“She felt a strong pull toward the water and it was more than curiosity…”
Karen Katchur, The Secrets of Lake Road

“So okay― there you are in your room with the shade down and the door shut and the plug pulled out of the base of the telephone. You've blown up your TV and committed yourself to a thousand words a day, come hell or high water. Now comes the big question: What are you going to write about? And the equally big answer: Anything you damn well want.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
