I like above all to share the excitement of my dreams and discoveries, my doubts and fears, my joys and my sorrows, to take my readers on new journeys with me. Writing is how I communicate what I care about most, how I feel about the world about me, and our place in it, how our present grows out of our past. I love to create my stories out of the memories of my own life and the lives of others, to deal with difficulty and doubt, happiness and hope. Every story I write is for me a voyage of exploration. My readers are my fellow adventurers, good companions, living my story with me.
