It has been 10 years since I wrote my groundbreaking novel.
As we aproach the 10th anniversary of September 11, one story that has haunted me is Such Sweet Sorrow.
It was one of my first novels to tackle mature and adult issues such as adult-child relationships, cousin-incest; sexual awakening and longing. Many of the taboo subject matters that Butterfly and Ray face during the summer before 9-11.
This isn’t a story about the loss of innocence; it’s about a young woman’s awakening with her cousin whom she’s fallen in love with.
The lines of right and wrong are closed. There’s no love nor lust. It is a revelation of an era that was. An era that will never be the same.
The day the Twin Towers crashed on 9-11, was the day the innocence of America came to an end.
“Such Sweet Sorrow” is a bittersweet story about incestal love in an era that was destroyed forever.
I hope to get a chance to finish up the novel just in time.
Go for broke.
