I didn’t mean to write The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus. In fact, I tried very hard not to write it. But every time I sat down to write the young adult novel I was supposed to be working on, I found myself wanting to write about the issues that were pressing in on me at the time—my hormones were taking me on a wild ride, my son was getting ready to leave for college, and I was way behind on the deadline for my book.
I fought this wicked urge for awhile, but eventually I gave in and let myself write my first book for adults. It began as a sort of memoir in poems, but I soon realized that the tale I wanted to tell wasn’t just my own story, but every woman’s story.
