I've been practicing writing since I was in grade school and trying to imagine the secret lives and adventures of earthworms. I became enamored early with the excitement and complexity of sci. fi. and determined to become a theoretical physicist and genre author. Somewhere along the way, I read Cannery Row and became infected with this idea of "characters" and "humanity" and "beauty." My aspirations to be a pulp genre writer have never recovered.
Why do I write? Because that's how I find beauty in the world. With everything I write, I try to deepen and expand the place in the world that I inhabit. I hope that everyone can find the same in their life.
