"New Orleans has such a deep history—from the food to the architecture, it is unique in all the world. That's one of the reasons I set Sparrow in New Orleans—it's a city everyone should experience at least once. After the initial outpouring of aid, the country seems to have forgotten the Gulf Coast, but they are at least ten years away from being "okay" again. I will return New Orleans again, in person and in my books, in hopes of keeping the city alive in people's thoughts."
