This is me and my brothers and sister circa 1972 or 1973. I've been asked to write a Q&A about myself to help promote LIE and I just stare at this photo, thinking what is that girl in the back, the tall one for her age, thinking? She's 10 or 11. She's the oldest. She's standing in front of her house on Daisy Farms Drive in New Rochelle. The grass probably needs to be cut, the bushes certainly do. Maybe she's happy that her photo is being taken, or nervous? Her father usually doesn't have time to take photos. He's too busy being the only parent and the breadwinner. I don't know why on this day he decided to take this photo. We don't look particularly dressed for photos, though it looks like we made an effort to wash our faces and comb our hair, and we are all smiling. We must have been happy. Maybe that's how I should start the Q&A for LIE: I must have had happy days as a child. But how does all this relate to why I have to write? Or, why I decided to write LIE? I'll have to stare at this photo more and try to figure it out.
