Memory Surprises

2022 is a bumper reunion year for me. This month I’m returning to the Midwest to reconnect with my boarding school buddies. The physical changes often tug my gray brows under my bangs in surprise. But more startling are the shared memories. Have you ever reconnected with old friends and found your memory doesn’t match theirs? Oh man, I have. There was a reason I forgot those gnarly little tidbits.

I explored memory accuracy in my upcoming release MURPHY’S CHOICE. Chaz’s relationship with her uncle hinges on her memories and complicates her budding romance with Nate. Imagine how you would feel if you returned home after a long absence and your memories conflicted with the facts. That would blow a hole in your confidence. But you’ll find Chaz is made of sturdier stuff.
