Why I write:
My writing ability is a mitzvah. I am the instrument. Writing is my love, the finished products are my offspring.

Writing is breathing.

I like this forerunner to the Leonard McGill series, explaining how the character thinks and his motivation. I've read most of Mosley's books and find them all quick reads.

“power the mojave desert with miles & miles of solar panels!”
Joy Leftow

“Do you know what we call opinion in the absence of evidence? We call it prejudice.”
Michael Crichton, State of Fear

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

“I wandered through the cosmos in search of the treasure but found it within me.”
Karry Lynn Dayton

“This King was not surrounded by love at all, but arrogant selfish
men, who’s only purpose had been to become strong enough to enter,
thus by doing so isolating themselves and their idea of what the
King should be from all the rest of their kind.”
Karry Lynn Dayton, Saint Horz - The Stone Saint
