Jade Shyback is the author of the new novel Aqueous. She lives in Oakville, Ontario.
Q: What inspired you to write Aqueous, and how did you create your character Marisol?
A: The inspiration for Aqueous was found on a road trip along the Pacific Coast Highway with my three daughters, just before my eldest “abandoned” me for university. The specifics of that life journey can be found in “Aqueous, an Idea” at www.jadeshyback.com.
Marisol was also developed in the rental car on that highway. She is a hybrid of all of the women that I love. They are young and old, loyal, smart, caring and kind without conceit or maliciousness. They are the wheelhouse of our society.
