Fiction (novels, short stories, lots of flash fiction); non-fiction (psychology, culture, climate change); plays (especially very short ones); screenplays; blog posts; children's literature. I've had plays produced locally, stories published in national anthologies, magazines, and Web sites, and articles in everything from local weeklies to The Writer magazine.
Climate change. I'm becoming a little monomaniacal ... but in, you know, a good way.
Oh sure, like I can pick just one! I like Shakespeare and Dickens, Orson Scott Card, Jonathan Stroud, Alice Sebold, Philip Pullman, and others.
Shakespeare! No contest. Though a more recently-dead writer might be in better physical shape.
You know, just stuff like completely change the way we live on the planet and help explore how we can know deep and lasting happiness. (This would be funnier if I were actually kidding.)
I write fiction, nonfiction, plays, and screenplays, and I blog on writing, climate change, and the psychology of habits (lucreid.com and faceclimatechange.com). My first published book was Talk the Talk: The Slang of 65 American Subcultures (2006).
