S.M. Bjarnson interview with main character Laney Rhodes.
SM- Laney you’ve grown up and experienced the oddest of predicaments. To be honest you have not had the best living situations or easy upbringing!
LR- I think everybody can say they didn’t have an easy channel for maturity. Although not many mothers are hookers, like mine.
SM- Do you ever have regrets in your life, Laney?
LR- Not as many as I thought I would at this point. There have been items in my life that people categorize as mistakes. But I could never justify a human being as a problem, let alone a mistake.
SM- You are quite brave for sharing your story with thousands of people?
LR- I wouldn’t call it bravery, I just see myself as an example rather than a statistic. I evolve from the situations I have placed myself in, and the story I hope translates a journey of overcoming circumstances.
