Describe your desk
I don't have a desk. But, i have a usually working brain and my overstuffed Macbook desktop freckled with tiny icons...leaving me just enough cleared space for a tantalizing view of a soft, serene wallpaper reflecting the unattained, yet desired state of my mind.
When did you first start writing?
Five. It's true. Well, almost true. I didn't actually have that skill down, but, i had discovered what letters were and my father wrote for the college sports paper, so i wanted to be a journalist just like him. The details of spelling and making sentences were not about to get in my way. I had a small pad of white paper held together with a rubber edge and a yellow wooden pencil that i carried around with me in my pocket everywhere i went. I annoyed people with endless questions and scribbled down their answers making marks that i felt sure were close enough approximations of what they were saying to be printable.
The best of theories can be wrong. The worst of theories always are. The US government’s Official Story was, and still remains, the worst of theories. This is why 9/11 still matters.
The best alternative theories to the Official Story of 9/11 are in this riveting political drama, where historical fiction allows the reader to see events from the inside - from planning to planes to who to blame.
