I would write if nobody read a word of my books or poems or essays, but when somebody does, I am rewarded. And when that somebody tells me that a character is strong or a plot is interesting or the language is moving, my reward is even greater.
This website is designed to introduce you to my work and to give you the opportunity to tell me what you think. I do read all my own e-mail, and I'll try to answer if you write.
I hope you enjoy what you read here,
