In the Summer of 2014, I read Somerset Maugham’s The Razor’s Edge and fell in love with the main character Larry Darrell, who gives up his traditional life in pursuit of some higher truth. I started reading a lot of Eastern religious literature; researching Buddhism and Hinduism because Larry had been interested in that as well. What happened when I started that research is what drove me to write my novel titled It’s Hard to Say.
