From the Author

"There are authors who hate the "Ideas"  question, for there is no right answer. But I have found that if you ask that question about one work in particular, you will often be surprised at the answer. Each work of fiction does have an origin. It was written for a person or an anthology or a contest. It started out with a theme or an object. The research required to write it turned it in a different direction, as did the personal experiences called upon to make the characters real.

These are the "Real" stories, the fascinating ones, the ones where you discover that no matter how fantastic the genre, the author really is writing what he or she knows.

My father only reads non-fiction. He is the progeny of my Nana, who insists that all fiction is a bunch of unhelpful lies and hooey. You can imagine my surprise when Mom--my first reader--handed some of my fiction over to my father for his insight. Why on earth would he want to read that? I wasn't embarrassed or anything, I just know it's not his cup of tea, so I wasn't going to force it on him.

You can also imagine my surprise when he reportedly told my mother how amazed he was that "Alethea puts so much of herself into her writing."

It's true. All these stories inside me, all these little bits of myself, are broken off and used as treasured exotic spices for whatever I plan to be cooking. I continue to live life, for better or worse, and my experiences go into my writing. There is no story I've written that doesn't have some tiny personal, autobiographical circumstance in it.

And then there are stories, like "The God of Last Moments," which have too much."

--from the Origin of "The God of Last Moments"
