I have a darker imagination than most people.
Amazon has historically been a bully, and I don't shop there. But I love Goodreads. For the record.
I'm always looking for complicated characters in fiction about whom I can feel a dozen feelings at once - in the space of a single paragraph, even.
If you don't ponder the end of the world on a regular basis, I don't think you're really human.
My signature is like a squished spider.
Before my book, 'California,' came out, I had modest hopes for it. Or, let's put it this way - I had the same hopes that every literary fiction writer in America has: I wanted the novel to be well-received, critically. As for sales? I didn't want it to disappoint, but I didn't expect it to be a best-seller, either.
