A harsh prison in England.

“You’re now pacing the streets absolutely free as a bird while my whole family and I are locked up forever in the jail of our sorrow. In the prison of our grief. This sentence which will last me my entire life.
“Do you know I still cry every day for my baby? Every single day.
“I imagine what she would’ve been like if she were with me today. Eight. Did you know she would have turned eight this year? Can you imagine me with a squirmy blonde dynamo in my hands today, chattering non-stop by my side and regaling me with sunny smiles, her sweet delight filling up my whole being? You can’t imagine it?
“Well, I can’t either.
“That’s what you took away from me.
“For years all I did was mourn. But one day, I just got sick of crying.
“I was crying because of what you had done to me.
“From that moment onwards, I started wanting you to pay.
“The desire to exact my revenge started burning in my heart, so strong, so sweet, so terrible and powerful. Instead, I started imagining, in all the gory details, how I would torture you when I finally got my hands on you.”
I could never write about a happy, conventional couple living in a happy, conventional, suburban neighbourhood with two cars and one and a half children, a dog and a pet bird, working at happy, conventional, uneventful jobs.
My heroes and heroines have to walk through fire (or rather, crawl through fire), get strangled, beaten, shot at, drowned, poisoned, get caught in tornados or earthquakes or get attacked by mutant gnats. Or, they have to strangle, beat, shoot, drown and poison other people.
A story with anything less than these dramatic, hair-raising elements was always too boring for me to even consider telling.
I believe in magic. I believe that the world is full of mystery, and that there are more things in heaven and earth than could ever be dreamt of in our conventional, logic-based philosophies.
Outside of that, as a dry, mundane list of facts about me, I’m a single parent from a village near Montreal, Canada, who now enjoys the freaking great good fortune to live happily with my two sons on the almost-tropical south coast of Spain, basking in summer eight months of the year. Typical activities include running a marathon with the kids to school every morning and cooking frequently for an Always Hungry teenaged son with four stomachs.
