Circle the Truth

Circle The Truth bookcover

Where did the idea for Circle the Truth come from?

One winter, I kept seeing news stories about babies going out in snowstorms. Toddlers would get up in the night and go outside. One survived – two died. I couldn't let go of this – where were those babies going? It must have felt cold to them, too…why were they wandering around in a blizzard?

The same winter, I lived in a house with a wooden spiral staircase. One night, I dreamed that I walked down the hall and found, instead, a wide carpeted stairway. The dream was so real and so vivid that I couldn't shake it.

These two images crashed into each other, and Circle the Truth was born.
