Excited to be both the interviewer and interviewee with the hero of NANOWRIMO (National November Writing Month), Grant Faulkner, at the Mill Valley Library in San Rafael on Tuesday, November 12th, from 6:30 to 7:30. I wrote STOLEN SECRETS during NANOWRIMO, and I’m not sure I would’ve finished it without that daily word-count nipping at my heels. I was afraid to write it, if you want to know the truth. Being able to push through kept me too busy to consider such questions as: How can I pull off a book with a Holocaust mystery in it? Who am I to write something like this? Who I am to write at all?
