Deb Caletti: “I studied journalism in college, thinking it was a more “practical” form of writing, and because I understood the odds of making it in this profession.
I started writing seriously when my children were in preschool.
Deb Caletti: “The idea for the book came much the same way the book itself begins.
I woke up one morning, and my husband wasn’t there.
As a writer, I use the same tools for both age groups – empathy and honesty.” There were no fences for me to stay in or out of. While He’s Gone has a female protagonist and while the story is told from her viewpoint, some of the strongest responses to the book have been from male readers who’ve really related to the corners of marriage and remarriage that are explored in it.
Leslie Lindsay: Can you tell us a little about your earlier writing days? How long did it take to get your first book accepted/published?

Not the kind of accident that occurs between the covers of the book, but one in which you find yourself pleasantly surprised. Caletti and her world of fiction: Leslie Lindsay: Thank you for agreeing to be with us today, Deb.
Having a long-standing career writing YA, this is Caletti’s first book intended for an adult audience. HE’S GONE totally ranks up there as one of my all-time favorite books.
