“Writing saved me from the sin and inconvenience of violence.”
“When people say there is too much violence in my books, what they are saying is there is too much reality in life.”
— Joyce Carol Oates
A dear friend of mine today suggested that perhaps my novel might present what not to do in cases of sexual and domestic abuse…
I’m not sure… Actually I think she said my novel might raise awareness of sexual and domestic abuse. Of this I am certain.
I think IN THE SEVENTH DAY is in reality an exploration of how wicked the world can be, and how easily we can fall prey to those who wield the world’s – and Satan’s – power; especially those who wield Lucifer’s power within the clothing of a sheep.
