Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Bonding with Nature, walking my dogs in the woods, taking them swimming with the kayak, snow-shoeing in the winter.
I practice some standing meditation and Qigong movements. I usually manage to work out a few times a week, mainly weight training with a lot of calisthenics, handstands, yoga poses in between sets... My cardio is mainly kettlebell swings and indoor fixed-gear bike, with some dance and kickbox choreography mixed in.

This is a book of poetry that had its origins almost twenty years ago. It is largely tongue-in-cheek, humorous, lyrical, formal and free. I have tried to preserve the youthful exuberance characteristic of those early years, while reworking some of it for dignity's sake. Maturity is a beautiful thing.
