“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.”William Faulkner
What Jennifer is working on now ...
I’m a lifelong lover of fiction, for the way story moves us. I’ve long been working on a novel set in New Orleans and coastal Italy, about a woman who sets out to recover a painting of her grandmother which was lost in World War II, and retraces her grandmother’s untold story. The story is important to me, for the influence my own grandmothers’ stories have had on my life, and on the rebirth we can experience even when the world feels at its end. My goal is publication by a NYC publishing house, reaching a wide audience–reason to write in all the stolen hours, revising, rewriting, and reworking.
