Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
Carl Sagan, Leonard Shlain, Thomas Hager. I admire these authors because they write about scientific truth in creative ways. Their works reveal the sublime beauty, elegance and poetry of the natural world. These authors portray the scientific method as the courageous and adventurous endeavor it is to help us better appreciate the fruits of scientific exploration which so enrich our existence. They remind us how hard won scientific progress is lest we take for granted how far the human species has come, lest we take for granted the benefits we enjoy on a daily basis.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read exclusively non-fiction. I think this speaks to my workaholic, achievement oriented nature. Even if I'm doing something for pleasure, I can't seem to indulge myself unless there is something I will learn from it; some new source of inspiration that can fuel me, some new way of seeing the world that I can use to infuse my own writing.
