When my agent asked to interview Rebecca, I was extremely concerned. Almost instantly, however, I realized that she believed it was I who would be writing the replies to her questions. She does not comprehend the level of intrusion. But Rebecca seemed amicable, saying that “she’d always wanted to pay me back.”
I have never seen friendship as a tally of “mine” to “theirs”, but I suppose I am grateful, though this publishing business was not my idea.
Rebecca will be pleased to have her perspective understood, in any case.
