Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Life without limits––being able to escape and be anything I want––go anyplace in the world, possible or impossible.
What do your fans mean to you?
Much of the time it means more to me than I'm willing to admit. You could ask, what does it mean to paint pictures and have a public who likes them? Without an audience, most of us would lack inspiration; we'd be playing to empty seats in sterile auditorium devoid of heart and soul. Does the tree make noise when it falls in the forest if no one is there to hear it? Maybe, but it is not nearly as much fun. Do I love and appreciate fans? Yes, with all of my heart. There is no lack of talent in the world, but there is of fans, people who truly appreciate the work of others. God bless them, and especially those who can find it within themselves to bestow words of kind appreciation.

  • 50 Stories in 50 States: Tales Inspired by a Motorcycle Journey Across the USA Vol 1, Great Lakes & N.E. on Feb. 28, 2014

    Okay. I just now found this book. By accident. How lucky can you get? I immediately went to the "Michigan Story" and was delighted to see it took place near Harbor Springs. I intended to read only a few paragraphs and return to it when I was awake. Well, let me tell you, the story did that! I couldn’t stop reading. Great writing. I highly recommend it. Thanks to the author(s). Hope we meet someday at a book signing!
