I liked 'The Very Ordered Existence of Merilee Marvelous ' very much.I just wanted to ask you how you got the idea for such an awesome book.I know I cried while reading it.
Thanks so much! That makes me very happy you liked it even if it made you cry! I grew up in Texas so a lot of the elements in book are based on stories I heard. The town Jumbo is based on Marfa which really does have mystery lights. I saw them once about 15 years ago and when I saw them I knew I would write about them someday.
