Goodreads asked Joan Ellis:

What are you currently working on?

Joan Ellis My third novel: Guilt. It's about a seven-year-old girl who is alone with her younger brother when he dies of an overdose. The guilt informs the rest of her life with near tragic consequences.

It is a powerful, poisonous but pointless emotion yet it is something we all feel from time to time. I wanted to explore it at its most toxic.
