My career as a writer started in magazine publishing, writing and editing content about science and technology. (I wrote the text for an illustrated children’s book called Rocks & Minerals, too). In that medium, pages are generally designed to have a balance of text and type. Pages with too much type are considered “text heavy.” It’s not a good thing. But if you read the New Yorker or the Economist, you know that “text heavy” ain’t all bad. And when it comes to my life, text heavy is actually pretty great. Not only is my day job focused on words, but so too are my evenings, as I pursue this animal called fiction.

The more I write fiction, the more I think about it, and the more I find that I need a place to keep my scattered musings and opinions. This is it. I hope you’ll subscribe to this blog and follow me, and if you do, I hope you find it useful. Because this blog isn’t just about me, it’s about you, too, and how we’re all trying to find our way as writers.
