Are you reading any interesting books at the moment? I am studying the painter JMW Turner and may wind up writing a book about him. He basically invented and glorified “landscape” as its own art form and I desperately admire the discipline he showed to his art: For instance he always carried a sketch book and was constantly drawing everything he saw.
What contributes to making a writer successful? Tenacity and good storytelling skills…but not necessarily in that order.
Do you have any advice for writers? Write three pages every day without fail.
What do you do to unwind and relax? I walk my wonder dog, Finn the magnificent! I hike and swim and sip good wine.
What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing? I have a book of poemsout as well as a one hour spoken word CD of poems. And now I have a novel.
Do you have any upcoming appearances that you would like to share with us? We are going on a book tour across the country this summer starting in Los Angeles then Colorado then New York and (My birth sate) New Jersey and finally all the states in new England, which is an area I love.
If you could leave your readers with one bit of wisdom, what would you want it to be? “If faut (d’abord) durer” meaning: First, it is necessary above all things to endure.
When you wish to end your career, stop writing, and look back on your life, what thoughts would you like to have? That I told the truth as I saw it.
