Here’s the first question in my self-interview:
What gives with setting your new novel in L.A? You don’t live there, and you aren’t even from that city. In fact, you were born and raised in Manhattan – which is the polar opposite of LA — and you spent your summers with the Norwegian side of your family in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood of Seattle. That’s another completely so-not-LA place.
And now you live in the Pacific Northwest.
What are you doing, writing about Los Angeles?
