I write fiction like a person alone in a canoe on a river without any oars - controlled by the current. Each day, I have no idea where I may be swept off to or what will happen next. A heartfelt thrill overtakes me as I watch characters develop, events unfold, settings come into focus, and all the details blend together naturally as the whole story is unearthed. It is pure discovery and wonder, a childlike experience in a new world. To me, writing represents the last frontier and true freedom. I am a literary explorer." (less)

Without that initial excitement of creating something new, the process would be stale and lifeless. Since my mind quickly picks up on formulaic patterns, I shy away from redundancy. For example, I am currently reading a haunted house novel. I have no desire to rehash what countless other authors have created in this genre. However a few years back, a different take on the haunted house concept popped into my mind, including an original element absent in other stories. My editor and pre-readers had never read or heard of a story like it. This fresh idea serves as the inspiration behind the book (it'll be a few years before I get to that one). My motivation to write, however, comes from an internal desire to simply complete the task and share the work with my readers. It is the same self-motivation any adult uses to get up and go work every morning, start a business, or complete homework for a college class. I think it's important to draw a distinction between motivation and inspiration. (less)

“It was like telling someone who's afraid of the dark to go stand in the sunshine; eventually, the sun always goes down.”
A.X. Rhodes, Saying Goodbye: a short story

“Does seeing and understanding the evil that men do taint our souls with their darkness? Can I truly look into the abyss and remain as I was? Or has a mere glimpse of its wicked depths made me a part of it?”
A.X. Rhodes, The Writs of Wrath

“There is no friend as loyal as a book.”
Ernest Hemingway

“In normal life we hardly realize how much more we receive than we give, and life cannot be rich without such gratitude. It is so easy to overestimate the importance of our own achievements compared with what we owe to the help of others.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison
