“Ideas arrive in all types and forms. In complete arcs, in snippets, in fragments, in characters, but most especially in real-time conflicts, behind veils, in those places in which hidden forces oppose nature and the natural ways.
And in those places, I set stories, anchor characters and seek to understand our times.”
