There’s something not right about ZJ’s dad these days. He’s always been a great guy – Pro Football Player, star tight end, great father and ZJ’s hero. But now, things are different. And thanks to ZJ’s friends, he doesn’t have to figure stuff out on his own.
Where it takes place:
Maplewood, New Jersey
Where I wrote it:
In Park Slope, Brooklyn, Brewster, NY and while I was traveling around the country talking about writing.
Why I wrote it:
You know – I think I thought I was writing Before The Ever After to talk about head injuries and loss. But in the end, it became a book about friendship and family and love. So I guess I wrote because that’s what I wanted to talk about here. ZJ has some really cool friends. It was so fun putting them on the page.
