What do your fans mean to you?
Writers write to bring richness & delight to their readers. Only one reader, or a million, you are in our hearts with every word we put on paper.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I am particularly fond of language: ancient, modern, ethnic, upper class, gutter slang, the language of thieves or the idioms of doctors, the words a mother might choose, or a wizard. I collect vocabularies and marvel at speech patterns. We have delightful ways of expressing ourselves, we humans!
