As a speech-language pathologist in the public schools, I feel lucky that I get to spend nearly every day in high school. People often ask me if my students inspire my work. The answer is yes and no. I never write about my students. I will leave it up to them to write their own stories. I will say that their struggles and experiences remind me of my own struggles and experiences. Mostly I write about the things that perplexed or disturbed or haunted me when I was their age. The things I never quite got over.
Forget Me Not is a paranormal verse novel that helped me work through my feelings about something that happened many years ago that left me with a question that has haunted me ever since. "What happens to the soul after suicide?"
I don't want to give any spoilers, but I will say that in spite of the theme, the book has a happy ending.
But not for everyone.

On a lighter note, Hank sang a variety of songs about everything from his infatuation with Helen Hunt to a tune about Particle Physics, and a tribute to the Eighth Book in the Harry Potter Series (a book he was begging J.K. Rowling to write). Phoenix is next on the tour and after that, the brother's will head to sunny California.
