“In her novel Oh Gad, Joanne Hillhouse braves the challenge of writing about the complexity of dual identity by showing how one person reconciles those pieces of themselves through fight , family, and forgiveness….I loved your character Nikki. I really identified with her identity struggles and how she came to terms with her past and present.”
I like this quote by my interviewer over at Fabulous ‘N Frugal in great part because she seems to get Nikki, easily the most polarizing character in my novel Oh Gad! Readers tell me they have wanted to smack her and hug her; sometimes the same person in the space of a simple ill-thought-out action. Me, I wanted to hug her. How about you?
