I've written six novels and four pieces of nonfiction, so I don't really have a genre these days.
Left to my own devices, my first inclination is to mess in other people's lives. I secretly believe my whole family, and really the whole world, is my responsibility.
I loved every second of Catholic church. I loved the sickly sweet rotting-pomegranate smells of the incense. I loved the overwrought altar, the birdbath of holy water, the votive candles; I loved that there was a poor box, the stations of the cross rendered in stained glass on the windows.
For me, Jesus is my cleft in the rock. He is my safest friend, my safe totally loving accepting big brother.
