"It’s a feature of our age that if you write a work of fiction, everyone assumes that the people and events in it are disguised biography — but if you write your biography, it’s equally assumed you’re lying your head off."

— Margaret Atwood

I hesitate to write parents who are abusive or absent because I worry that people will think that its based upon my own parents, when in fact the opposite is true. My parents are amazing. I don't mind much if readers decide that all the characters are me or Jesus in Purgatory,* but I worry when it comes to deciding they are based on other people.


*And another thing, why is Jesus even in Purgatory? If He can't get right into heaven, there's no hope for me, is there? I mean, His dad freakin' owns the place!
