Q: What was your inspiration for STONE GARDEN?

MM: Since I was a teenager there were two stories in my life that remained untold. One was the disappearance of a classmate, a boy, my junior year. The other is a memory of someone telling me that a visiting prisoner (yes, we had those assemblies!) had killed her babysitter. Honestly, I might have dreamed this. Since I currently teach English to high school juniors and seniors, their voices are very close to me. Listening to them reminded me of my past and then these stories emerged.
