Preview of Four Dog Riot (click here). It's a 3 minute mp3 audio file.
For me, the hardest part of writing a novel isn't the writing. The hardest part is answering the question: "What's it about?"
It's easier to say what it's not about: construction, dogs, riots.
My stories are driven by character, not plot. How do you sum up a bunch of characters in just a few words? The book cover (by Melody Pilotte) does a better job of introducing them. Four kids, one guitar, and a world of change.
