Headfire – Gail Reitano

Headfire

My upcoming novel HEADFIRE is set in the southern New Jersey Pine Barrens, where I come from.

I knew from the time I was about eight years old that I wanted to be a writer. Growing up where I did, not just in the beautiful strangeness of the NJ Pine Barrens, but on Uncle’s property called The Harbour, my inspiration was nature and silence, what Mom called “quiet.”

ArtePovera1

When I am writing this is where I want to be, inside a Mario Merz glass igloo. Italy’s Arte Povera movement of the late 1960’s aimed to reconnect man to nature and to argue against a growing corporate mentality. In my imaginary studio there is no clutter or distraction. I am sheltered at the same time as I can view the world.
