Good catch on Bobby/Barry. Fun (or boring) fact: the original character name was Barry Bonds, bc I am not good at names and it was the first thing that came to me. And then my husband read it and was like, uh, you do know that’s a baseball player, right? → Bobby Bonilo
Hi, sorry it took me so long to write back! To answer your question, when I first started writing this I had no idea it would ever become a book, let alone get published. It was just a cathartic exercise to channel some of my frustrations from my day job at a start-up…At some point it took on a life of its own and next thing I knew it was 300 pages…
reading takes so long though!
only partly kidding. in the moment, it always seems easier to agonize and do dumb little things (like quizzes) than really take the bull by the horns (whether that’s reading a book, talking through things with a coach or friend or expert, etc etc)
