Our Little Secrets is a book idea that had been floating around in my head for years. Some of the character names are nods to people I have encountered in my life, and some of the settings are places I visited a lot while I was in a band that performed in the Providence and Newport, Rhode Island areas. And just so you know, it is…a work of fiction.

In a world where we’re bombarded by the media, friends, family and television I see a lot of people defined by expectations, fear and responsibilities. I often wonder if people would be happier if they searched inside and decided who they want to be and then required that the media they are exposed to, the friends and family they are surrounded by and the television that they watch are their to support them and left them up as they pursue their best life, instead of holding them down so that they fit in a nice, predefined box.
