Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
That is a difficult question to answer, since writing is not simply a matter of putting words into a computer, or on a page. Some of the most beautiful moments I have had as a writer have take place in museums, gardens, on the streets of New York or other cities, or at the theater whether it's seeing a movie, a play, or a concert. I live in New York which is always a form of theater—so just being here is exciting, although there are times when it can be simply draining, and I need to recharge by leaving. I love any form of performance—dance, sports, the streets, and sometimes simply being with friends. It's all a part of the theater of my life.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I listen to what my friends, who are often other writers, have to say; I read reviews; I also keep my eyes open to new ideas and talent.
