I bought your book because I heard that it was written as an exchange of emails between two people . . . Last year I rekindled a childhood romance this way. It occurred to me that the Internet lets us relate to each other new ways. It is very different than meeting and getting to know someone. I liked the way that your characters in Chasing Twilight were able to get to know each other in so many ways. Thank you for showing me that the rest of the world does this too.
Thanks so much for your comments on Chasing Twilight. Indeed, the book was written to highlight the notion that the web allows us immediate access to information and relationship like never before. When two people can't be together physically, it heightens their awareness of relationship on other levels. This is like what happens when one of our senses is taken away, say sight, and the senses of smell, sound and touch become more keen. Because the Internet allows us to develop relationships with people we seldom physically encounter, many of us better understand how we relate to each other on the most subtle levels, beyond the senses. The understanding of our intellectual and emotional exchange through words over the web is most obvious. Great debates over the quality of these relationships continue. Through the ages, philosophers have given us many models for the structure of human exchange and many are more dimensional than just physical, emotional and intellectual. I am particularly interested in the exchange of soul and spirit that occurs between people in relationship, and how it effects experience. I hope Chasing Twilight was able to convey some of that to you.
Very truly yours, Molly Brogan
