Things That Surprise

An excerpt from Paul Dimond’s in-depth interview with Jorie from Jorie Loves a Story: Conversations with the Bookish, June 8, 2017.

Q: Did anything surprise you as you were writing The Belle of Two Arbors?

A: After my last edit and final publication of this novel, many drafts and more revisions, long after Belle started blessing me a decade ago, I continue to wonder about her. I hope that readers will continue to wonder just as much about her, long after each finishes reading The Belle of Two Arbors.
