keyhole: far

When Alice looks through a keyhole of my door, and into my YA novel Far From You, she sees another girl named Alice. A girl who is named Alice because her mother was a huge fan of the book, Alice in Wonderland.

Alice loves playing her guitar and writing music. She loves her best friend, Claire, and is in agony when they get in a fight. She loves her dad, although she's feeling left out of his life since he's now remarried and has a new baby daughter to care for.

She loves her mom, and misses her desperately, since she died from cancer years ago.

And she loves her boyfriend, Blaze.

Let's peek in on a scene with Alice and Blaze.

autumn perfection

the air was cool
and crisp,
the way you want your sheets
when it's blistering

We walked to the park
and ran through the leaves,
picking them up
and throwing them at each other,
as if they were snowballs.

Instead of loud splat,
we got quiet flutters
of crimson and amber.

He pulled me to him,
spun me around,
and we fell
into a bed of foliage
fit for a king.

I wanted to freeze
the moment
in my mind
because there's nothing better
than flutters
of the heart.
