Personal Quote:

Once my son was diagnosed with cancer, I had this huge amount of pain and anger about how this could happen to the child I loved so much. And I definitely directed that into The War Zone. I wrote it differently than anything I've written. I would rush back to the house while he was in chemotherapy and just write for two hours. I almost felt as if I were channeling it.


Three children, one deceased. One son, born 1983, died 1989. One son, born 2004, and one daughter, born 2009. See more »
