Keeping It Real

Addiction is a serious subject. I have characters that live in a life that is surrounded by the elements that create addictions. Many of my novels are ensconced in the music world. So having characters who need help getting free of drug or alcohol abuse is commonplace. I have to find out a lot about places like marijuana rehab at Malibu Horizon. While my novels are just stories, their work is serious and important. Knowing how they work and what is available helps me keep it real in my work too.
