I find that the most engaging crime fiction lingers not on the crime itself, but rather its impact. How does if affect a person individually? How does it ripple through a community? Daniel Woodrell, Jodi Picoult and Dennis Lehane are masters at detailing the repercussions that reverberate through lives. Want more wit? Timothy Hallinan. King Maybe is priceless.(less)

In the process, I learned time management skills and the importance of research. Every story or article requires research. The trick is deciding what details to include overtly, what to layer in discretely, and what facts should be quietly forgotten. Now that I’m my own boss, structuring my time has become even more critical.

Perhaps someday I’ll be able to use my knowledge to pen a mystery series as engaging as Ellis Peters’ Brother Cadfael!(less)

Joss Whedon
“If you can't run, you crawl. If you can't crawl-- you find someone to carry you.”
Joss Whedon

Margaret Atwood
“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad
