Quicksand was written to be an opera libretto. But it was written in the form of a novel. . . . I am devoted to "mystery" stories. I read them one after another, mostly two or three times. Some of the best writers today are writing in this form. So, I thought that I would try to make an opera libretto from a mystery story, told verbatim. That meant I had to write a mystery novel. Where do you start? The answer is: I always need a "location" to be inspired to tell a story. I found an inspiring location soon after I started looking. Everything in the novel is true, except for a lot of the facts.--from the author's introduction.
