To me, the stars offer an ideal backdrop for a story about rediscovering a love that’s been right in front of us all along. In the universe, as in love, so many of our most important discoveries are made when we look past what seems to be true, when we find ways around our blind spots, and when we discover new ways to see through the darkness into the light.

So often we see women scientists portrayed as rigid thinkers...or obsessed with aliens. The Space Between is about one woman's search in the space between what appears to be true and what she knows in her heart to be true. (less)
