Literary, or Light? Like an actor, I need to get into character, to try to create, for myself, back story and motivation, for my fictional children. My debut novel is a beach read, I’m told, which is not a bad thing. But I had wanted it to express my values, and I did strive to utilize my own background as a former English teacher. As I continue the saga of Ms. Murphy’s Makeover in my sequel, Charlotte’s Mess, I’m working out the psychological struggles of my characters, Charlotte, Theo, and Valerie, by plunging the depth of my own issues and those of the people I know well. If you’ve read and liked the book, I’d love to hear your thoughts about my “people.” Thanks! Jacqueline

    Def the longest post headline with the shortest post content I’ve seen. That said…pretty cool all around — and that’s the long and short of it.

      Thank you for letting me know. I’m still not adept at wordpress, obviously! Visit the blog at jacquelinegoldstein.com for a more reader-friendly view, hopefully.
