• Where writing takes you

    Every book and story I write starts with a simple idea, a little jolt of energy that makes me scratch my chin and go: “Huh,” or toss and turn in bed until I jot it down. I usually begin writing immediately before the initial spark fades away and make sense of symbolism and themes in…
