What is the writing process like for you?
You go into an altered reality when you write. It demands total presence.That’s what I love about writing. I loved writing when I made 25 dollars a story for a local newspaper, and I love writing now. I want to write until the day I die. It is my hope and prayer that I can do that.
I just love to read. I read wherever I am. On an airplane. On vacation. Even when I’m not feeling well—that’s the best because you can just read and
read and never leave the couch. Even the books I use for research. I love to read.
I hope people don’t lose their love of books.
Storytellers today and in the past have an ancient, almost spiritually appointed place in culture. Stories change people’s lives. Books change people’s lives. I hope we don’t lose our storytellers and our story readers.
