The Literary Titan Silver Award is "bestowed on books that expertly deliver complex and thought-provoking concepts. The ease with which ideas are conveyed is a reflection of the author’s talent in exercising fluent, powerful, and appropriate language."
Here's part of my interview with the Literary Titan folks.
The Lockhart Women follows the lives of a mother and daughters as they navigate life post divorce. When things start falling apart the family must pull together to persevere. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?
Brenda Lockhart marries a postal worker, has her children early in life and is a stay-at-home mom. When the novel begins, she feels like she’s put all her eggs in the wrong basket, but she doesn’t know how to change anything, until she’s forced to. I wondered what that would have been like. I chose a completely different path for my life. I was single until I was 36 and never had children. When I was in my late thirties (Brenda’s age) women would tell me they wished they’d waited to start a family, that they’d had a career, and had more fun before they settled down. They envied my freedom. Some even admitted they regretted having children. I was always puzzled by that. Everyone makes choices and has regrets. Read more here.
