Sam called last night. He's about half-way through editing Grace and has some incredible ideas about making it better. I can't wait to see his notes! One of the most interesting parts of our conversation was about a supporting character. When I wrote the book, I could envision all of the other characters so well. But not Cooper. He was more the embodiment of an idea and philosophy. A voice to a position that needed to be included to round out a theme of the book. Yet this was the character Sam liked most. It's always so enlightening to hear how other people interpret your work.
