Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
Lisa C. Taylor
I've always been interested in how people cope with loss, trauma, or change. Growing a New Tail is a collection of short stories where characters must, in a sense, reinvent themselves. I'm also drawn to quirky characters who are not what they initially seem to be. I'm of the opinion that everyone has a hidden side and that is most interesting to me as a writer. I like surprises in life and in fiction. I much prefer the good ones in the former--with the latter, anything can happen.
