What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I am delighted by the experience of seeing a piece unfold, watching the story as I hope my readers will. To be immersed in a story or a poem, late at night, with a storm lashing the house is a joy, a guilty pleasure.
Who are your favorite authors?
Sheri S. Tepper, J.G. Ballard and the poet Dorothy Porter. None of them were willing to write within established limits, they have taught me to be unafraid to break new ground and write what nobody else will. Whenever I read something by one of those three I lose myself and then spend months going over nuances in my head.
