Cassandra is a novel that was written between November 1988 and April 7, 1990. It was a time when I was 26, just married, just moved to the Toronto area, pre-children. The painting is from a photo taken around that time at a cottage in New Brunswick. It has lived in my basement on a wall until the last couple of years and I am happy to see that it really fits the novel that was written around that time. It too has lived in the basement for years, waiting for me to do something with it.
I’m happy to say that like my little novella Sarah, this one is going up on Tablo. Genève Blue is happy to put her name to this one 🙂 I am editing as I type it out on the computer and whether or not it becomes an Amazon ebook or a paperback (if so it will start out on Lulu.com) remains to be seen. I’ll decide that when I’m done. In the meantime, it’s a pleasant trip back to the late ’80s and what it was like to be in my mid-twenties.
Seems like yesterday.
