The Other Origin of My Novel No Aloha

I previously mentioned that the Siege of Sarajevo, from April 5, 1992 to February 29, 1996, was a backdrop for a story I wanted to tell, and I found the characters that I wanted to talk abt in this article that appeared in the New York Daily News on July 28, 1991, the day after my birthday. And then the Siege of Sarajevo began the next year, and it went on and on and on, and I realized I wanted to tell a story abt the kids in the newspaper as refugee kids in a US city torn down and worn down by internecine civil war.
