Author Spotlight no.61

Morgen Bailey did a beautiful job with the Author Spotlight she posted about Painted Black.  Her site has a lot of other interesting interviews and lots of other writer/reader goodness.

“The characters in Painted Black know how true that is. The victim in the novel, Lexie Green, was kicked out of her home when she was 12 because her mother caught her boyfriend molesting her and blamed the little girl instead of the drunk man. One of my main characters, Chris, ran away from home because they lived in such poverty he felt he was just a burden to his single-parent mother who was working two jobs and had two small children to care for. He calls his mother every once in a while to tell her he’s okay, but because she never asks him to come home she validates that she doesn’t care about him.

The street kids I write about are examples of what you call “throw away youth’” kids who were either kicked out or ran away because life at home was so terrible anything seems better than what they left behind. When there is no one who cares where you are or what happens to you, you end up treated like garbage someone just tossed out on the curb.”
