Goodreads asked Carol Fragale Brill:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Carol Fragale Brill There's a quote by E.L. Doctorow that says, "Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia."

I was finishing my first novel, PEACE BY PIECE, when the Katie, the narrator in CAPE MAYBE, showed up in my head and started talking to me. So, it's not so much that I had the idea--more like Katie started telling me her story.
