In The Other Side of Quiet, Todi lives in Helam, Utah for the school year. Here she discovers an important truth about herself. Much of that discovery comes from her relationships with her foster parents, Carroll and Paisley Johnson, her teacher, Mrs. Childs, and her new creative writing friends, Anya, Tracey and Blake.
Todi is the only character that comes over from my other novel, Unauthored Letters. In an early draft of The Other Side of Quiet, I considered her being a narrator. Instead Mrs. Childs became the main narrator, but Todi still drove much of the story during its early creation.
Imagine Goldilocks, who learned to explore and survive among bears, suddenly being transported to Ken and Barbie’s dream house.
Well, that’s me and it’s wild.
