When I was a kid... I needed to belong.
I love the most the students with troubled lives.
I wanted to connect a modern story with a myth that I had read.
Accept what people offer. Drink their milkshakes. Take their love.
Love stories are probably all I've ever been able to write or want to write.
As my early drawings warned me, where humans go, lions and tidal waves follow.
I like to write first-person because I like to become the character I'm writing.
I think I write fiction for the opportunity to get beyond the limits of my own life.
The roundness of life's design may be a sign that there is a presence beyond ourselves.
Love comes in far more shapes and sizes than what the family-values crowd condones, of course.
