A Word from Lisa...

I love novels that involve the complexity of moral and ethical issues. And this idea just came to me one day, because I was thinking about how much my daughter means to me, and I'm a single mother with only one child. And I thought about what if I couldn't have had her, and then what if I had used a sperm donor, and then what if my donor turned out to be a suspected serial killer? It was as crazy a what-if as I could imagine but also one that would involve a lot of moral, ethical, and emotional complexity, so I got busy!
