OK, Goodreads tells me that answer is too short. Seriously: what I love about writing is how it allows me to participate more actively in the world: observing, learning, asking questions, having experiences. I love to travel and research my novels' settings: Spain (The Spanish Bow); Italy (The Detour); Taiwan and Japan (Plum Rains), even Baltimore (Behave). (less)

It's tempting to keep starting over when you're trying to write apprentice novels, but getting to the end is often what teaches us what the story is really meant to be about, as well as the best way to structure it.

“Since I was a very small boy, traveling from town to town, three hundred days a year, I learned to love this life. The cradlelike rock and sway of the train, the hospitality of our countrymen, the gentle hearts of our countrywomen.

Andromeda Romano-Lax, The Spanish Bow
