Explorations in Creative Writing is a group with whom I meet at least once a bweek, mostly for critique purposes. While I was writing The Red Dress, they were supportive and helpful by providing feedback and suggestions, for which I’m eternally grateful. Soon after the book was released, others in the group asked me questions about it and other topics during one of our meetings. Thanks to Jackie McBride at Brighter Vision Technologies, facilitator of this group, for recording the interview and making it available for me to post here and on my website.

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
