What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
A maelstrom of ideas, some great, which I will probably never put into practice, and some terrible which I will explore and then abandon. But, among the tangled vine of concepts which seem to sprout during the night, there are always one or two which, I hope, lead me to better writing or give me something interesting and useful to pass on to others.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Trying to work out how to make my life, and that of my family, an adventure. I love to travel and immerse myself and my wife and children into the cultures of other societies, to learn enough of a new language to get by in a new country. Oh, and I do a lot of thinking. About new writing concepts, certainly, but also about new ways to reach out to the world and find something interesting to say. (And no, I don't always succeed!)
