Joan Muller has done a bunch of stuff in her life. No more and no less than anyone else really. And the stuff she’s done is not that interesting, except for the fact that she was the only kid in her fourth grade class to vote for John F Kennedy when all the other kids voted for Nixon. She taught school, and her students really seemed to like her. Then she was a consultant for a textbook publisher. She’s published some short stories. Now she’s writing a novel. But that’s about it.
Joan’s story is about a significant moment that really happened. Probably. Fiction writers spend a lot of time in their heads, but this was real. She’s pretty sure.
