Reflections of a working writer and reader



Five Questions: A Writer’s Diary

1. Why do you blog?
I love being published every morning.

2. Which author and/or book has most influenced you?
It changes through the years, but most recently Paul Auster’s Brooklyn Follies is my idea of a perfect book. Smart, funny, and beautifully written.

3. Which three blogs do you most visit?
This changes all the time, but this month:
Paperback Writer,
He Wrote, She Wrote, and Pub Rants,

4. Why do you read fiction?
I get deep unexamined pleasure from reading a good book. I’d rather be reading than participating in real life, and that’s a little scary, hence the “unexamined” part of this answer.

5. What makes you laugh?
Lots of things but mostly the funny ways people (and animals) behave, in life and on the page.
