What is your favorite writing saying?

My writing says that life will always come at you in unexpected ways, which, at times, may have been expected; At it's best it also consoles.

What is your favorite book on writing?

I am re-reading The Modern Library's Writers Workshop and Gotham Workshop Writing Fiction. I often Google authors such as Jeffrey Eugenides, John Irving, Joyce Carol Oates, Philip Roth, Annie Proulx and Graham Greene to see what they have said regarding the subject.

What do you write?

I try to write about what is going on behind what is going on.

What do you read?

I read Everything. I am really getting into Joyce Carol Oates right now. I just read the end of the affair by Graham Greene this weekend; finishing The Cider House Rules and am awaiting Jeffrey Euginides' new book The Marriage Plot, which comes out in a couple weeks.

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

I have lived a lot. I've experienced some situations of heightened excitement, and some periods which were introspective and, comparatively, mundane- in a comforting sort of way. I try to capture both of these moods in my writing.
