Who are your favorite authors?

I like everything by D.H. Lawrence; James Joyce; Alice Munro, Virginia Woolf, etc. etc.

Why are you here?

I want to finish some stories that I have started and I want to start some new stories.

What do you think book bandit means?

My first impression is that by reading we steal with our souls.


Hi: writing is so difficult; but isn't it true that there is a writer in each of us? I've attended a couple of writing classes and really enjoyed the experience. I find that I need the kind of stimulus and support a writing group can provide.
