My family. It might never sell, but it would be a historical record. I’d put recipes in it and funny stories.

I’d like to write a kind of novel set in a garden on a summer’s day when nothing unusual happens. The challenge would be in making it interesting without anyone being shot.

Am I the only one who got “the favorite author” part?
Rumer Godden, it would be a story of redemption, entirely character driven.

Or Octavia Butler, soft sci-fi, post apocalyptic, character driven again, redemption again.

Franz Kafka. And I’d describe the political and social world in the USA in 2023.
