When something doesn't make sense, or I've lost enthusiasm for the storyline or the character, that's a sign to me that something is wrong. I co-wrote Finishing Machine with my colleague Emilia Gardner. When I got stuck, I often found that the best way to get typing again was to talk about where the story was at, and where it was going. Together we could identify the hurdle blocking the way, and then identify ways to fix it. Often as I found that as soon as I could make my mouth move and say the words, that the words would flow to the paper after.

I lived the story with him for more than a year, and I have stayed in regular contact with him since. I've always thought that his case was compelling, and important, because what happened to Gerald could happen to just about anyone. (less)

A week earlier Mike Arnold and Lissa Casey pleaded, on behalf of their client Ammon Bundy, for the protesters to "please stand down."

Lissa, Mike, and Michele Fiore give a play by play of how they ended up at the Refuge during the final standoff.
