About the novel


The story

THE MOMENT OF EVERYTHING is about Maggie, a laid off high-tech worker, who finds copies of love notes written in the margins of a copy of Lady Chatterley’s Lover in a used bookstore. Maggie becomes obsessed with the notes and with saving the fledgling bookstore. Her quest changes everything for her and those around her.


The setting

THE MOMENT OF EVERYTHING takes place in Mountain View, CA, the heart of Silicon Valley, where I moved in 1994 and lived for 15 years. It's still my favorite part of Silicon Valley. The people in Silicon Valley are driven and passionate. They have a deep longing for something: for discovery, for invention, and for love.
