I am a lover of books these treasures that stack up endlessly before us, each one asking to be read I ve been dreaming up stories and putting pen to paper since I learned to write the alphabet It is an affliction, to say the least Like any obsession, it is exceedingly difficult to quit I gave up giving up a long time ago I began my first novel twenty five years ago, after my first grown up I am a lover of books these treasures that stack up endlessly before us, each one asking to be read I ve been dreaming up stories and putting pen to paper since I learned to write the alphabet It is an affliction, to say the least Like any obsession, it is exceedingly difficult to quit I gave up giving up a long time ago I began my first novel twenty five years ago, after my first grown up adventure a trip to San Francisco I fell in love with the city The night I returned, I dreamed the entire plot to, Where the Deer Dwell It was a work in process for those many years until it was published in 2012 I vowed that I would not continue my writing career without finishing what I set out to do all those years ago Paradox Love, is my latest novel, first in the Paradox Love, series Another serious affliction is my inability to write a typical novel I never wanted to waste years of my life and the passion it takes to create merely to write a marketable novel Don t get me wrong To entertain the reader is my greatest joy But I just can t help myself when it comes to writing a message into the stories I write Back in the early 90s, when I was beginning, Where the Deer Dwell, I was writing about the issues of global warming before I d even heard the terminology used And in Paradox Love, I present the reader with what I hope is a gripping love story But alongside and indeed interwoven, I spin a tale of dogs Their stories are hard to read, but the lives of dogs are often times far from fairy tales Maybe you can let me know whether you thought the concept worked or not.I am at work on the second book in the Paradox Love, series, which is best written and conceptualized while enjoying the beautiful city I call home, San Diego, California
