When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I enjoy being out in nature, either alone or with kindred spirits. I appreciate opera even if it means spending a ten hour day to attend the San Francisco Opera. I'm interested in progressive politics and have walked for candidates or worthy causes.
What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy fiction with authentic historic or geographic backgrounds.. I like adventure travel books and some mysteries.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
"Alice in Wonderland" fired my imagination. "White Fang" inspired a sense of adventure.
