Fern G.Z. Carr My tastes are quite eclectic. In addition to reading poetry plus my Mandarin textbook daily, I've perused the Mueller Report and listened to Neil deGrasse Tyson's audiobook, "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry". I'm currently fascinated by Kevin Dutton's "The Wisdom of Psychopaths".

Shards of Crystal, while in part fictional, nevertheless draws upon many real-life accounts from the news and from people whose paths have crossed with mine.
