Fiction: When Truth Fails

Quote of the Day: “That’s what fiction is for. It’s for getting at the truth when the truth isn’t sufficient for the truth.” Tim O’Brien

One of the political topics in the air right now is about Pro-Life. I don’t usually get into political debates and I’m not this time. What I will say is that my latest mystery-thriller addresses this issue.

In my latest novel, Primed For Revenge, the main character Sydney Jones was brutally beaten and raped by her kidnapper. She became pregnant from the accoster and couldn’t imagine giving birth to the child that she’d always see as a result of the manhandling and rape. For the rest of the story read here.

There have been times in the past when fiction clearly stated the obvious truths about social, political, world events, and futurists’ expectations, and many have come true in our lifetime.

My suggestion about the current political restrictions concerning a woman’s body is doing the research: look at the mental health, financial, social welfare of THE woman affected. Then answer the question, should her life be legislated without her consent?

  1. I think what you’re trying to say is completely right. Ppl have this notion that all that writers do is lie and make up stuff but what they dont understand is that writers intake their environment and channel that environment and its elements into their writing. So i blv that the line between truth and fiction is rather thin.
