I’ve done a few interviews recently for podcasts and subscription boxes where I’ve been asked several variations of the same question: where do I get the inspiration for my family relationships? If you’ve read my books, you know they almost always have strong ties to siblings, or build those strong ties within the confines of the
“Did you two get Perry’s email yesterday?” I ask, pulling up the class syllabus on my laptop for all of us to see projected on the wall, then scrolling down to the rubric for our project.
