Q: What gave you the idea for NIGHT DIVE?
A: “At night, fish sleep and you can see them up close.” As soon as I heard that, I wanted to try night diving. It’s mysterious and sometimes scary. I wrote the book as a story of a girl who makes a night dive and meets a barracuda hunting for food, sees the strange night colors of fishes that look so different by day, what she does when her underwater light fails and countless other experiences which actually happened to me. My husband Marty and son Jim took the pictures. This book won a big prize.
