Zoeland Back Story

Map of Zoeland



This map was inspired by my own life history. Each building, element and object is a part of what makes me unique. For example, Zoey's home is a replica of my own childhood home in Rockville, Maryland. St Luke's Church represents my brother who died of AIDS at the young age of 33. Richmond Pond is the lake of my childhood haunt in Massachusetts. Lakewood Elementary school was the name of the school I graduated from in 6th grade. Erica Meadows was a field that my sister Erica and I played in growing up. Etc etc. The characters are also family and friends from my life - the names were changed but the heart is the same.  And so I invite all of you to make your own personal life map. Magic will happen! Guaranteed.
