Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to communicate ideas that I find important in an effective and memorable manner.

Writing is one of the few things I do well, and I have always found that when I needed to explain something, the best and most effective way to make my point clearly and in a comprehensible manner was to do so in writing. I know where I am, what I am doing, and how I want to tell the story. I can do what I set out to do clearly and sometimes, memorably.
What do your fans mean to you?
They are a validation of my work -- knowing that what I have written has touched them somehow, and affected them. When they come back with comments, I know they have been interested in what I have had to say.

I am often astonished at who I hear from -- sometimes I get e-mails from sons and daughters and grandchildren of the World War II figures I have written about, who are grateful for the material, and have even learned something about their ancestor.

Sometimes it's entertaining...I get e-mails from kids asking what I did in the war (I was born 20 years after it was fought), and sometimes it's upsetting...like an e-mail I got from an admirer of Herr Hitler, or the one who sneered that I could not write "a coherent sentence." It's hard to know what to do when you get something like that.
