Fun fact for those that don't know - this is my first novel, but I've been writing, recording, playing, and singing songs as far back as I can remember.
Other Lives is a song I'd been trying to write fore years. It's almost too tough a topic to think about let alone explore. With the help of my songwriting partner, Michael Herrman who wrote the beautiful guitar lines... the song finally came to life. It then went on to win grand prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
Thinking about the song was a very visual experience for me. I could picture it all... but it leaves off with her walking away. That picture in my mind is how the novel begins.
