Did I say I wasn't going to write about politics? If I did, I lied. Or the press took my words and twisted them to make a more sensational story. My latest book, Sour Apples, was released this week, and it's about…politics.
No, I don't have an axe to grind, or a party platform to promote--just a book. But politics is an inescapable part of our daily lives, even in off-years, so for a writer to ignore it entirely in the fictional communities we create seems unrealistic.
