I have two B.A. degrees from Indiana University one in History the other in English. I have won awards for poetry, written many short stories as well as some newspaper columns. This is my first novel.
I have had many different jobs thoughtout the years. Once I was a chef at a french cafe in my home town. The building had been the town's first bank over a hundred years ago. I noticed that in the basement there were walls behind other walls and I wondered what if someone had hid some money down there what would be their story? So I wrote this novel as that story.
