There is a euphoria, for creators, when the vision first appears, and you know all that's left is the writing. The day when you can say, "that is going to be a novel."

For me, there is often not a word on a page, only a theme, and an idea on how that theme can be played into a story.

Check out my new book! It alters from first person to third, and the third is many. The voices in the man's head move the narrative.

It's humorous and mysterious; a very different read.
