“History warns us. Legend fascinates us. Imagination drives us. Authors take these and create worlds that entertain, provoke and warn. Ultimately, even fiction is about the Story we all find ourselves in. And history makes sure no one forgets.”
Darrick Dean

“The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.”
Tom Clancy

“But how could you live and have no story to tell?”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, White Nights

“...in order to make you understand, to give you my life, I must tell you a story.”
