I wrote Bright Angel because I have always been interested in similarities, and differences between generations of the same families. Writing is hard work, and takes all my concentration. For those times that I simply can't write anymore, I like to read my favorite authors. I don't read for plot, and mostly don't read for content; those things I ready know. What I want are word sounds, how they fl...

he page, how they ennoble the characters. I read John Fowles, Umberto Eco's first book Name of the Rose, and a few others. I really enjoy reading Shakespeare. My favorites there are "Midsummer's Night Dream," "The Tempest," and "All's Well that Ends Well." One winter’s night in February of 2014, I had been writing all day, I stumbled into the living room, across to my favorite chair, picked up my Shakespeare, and randomly opened to Act 2, Scene 2 of “Romeo and Juliet” where Romeo, in an aside upon hearing Juliet’s voice, says: She speaks. O, speak again, bright angel! For thou art As glorious to this night, being o'er my head, As is a wingèd messenger of heaven Unto the white, upturnèd, wondering eyes Of mortals that fall back to gaze on him When he bestrides the lazy-puffing clouds And sails upon the bosom of the air. There it was for me; the whole book became structured. When I say that, I certainly don’t mean that I could see each nuance, or conversation. What I did see was that an angel, this ‘bright angel’ could hold my existing idea of how a single family could change, plus be the same over time. I didn’t want the stock form of divine intervention, something like the ‘Burning Bush,’ or the ‘Agony of St. Theresa.’ I wanted a character that could know history, which is in effect, knowing time. I wanted a Ph.D. in history; someone who was of a particular time, and had been changed by what he knew. I’m being purposely vague here. I will say that I am particularly taken by William Caxton, (1422 - 1491) the first professional English printer. Caxton’s craft changed the English-speaking world forever. What if a historian could help shape that early print revolution then, and now?
