If I get stuck, I accept that it's either because I'm not in the right frame of mind to be writing, or because I haven't prepared sufficiently for what I am working on.

When I am finished with a scene, or a poem, or I've ended a chapter in what I believe to be a perfect way, I get a real sense of satisfaction.

This is the long-term goal--anything else would be pointless.(less)

What makes the Devolution Trilogy so unique (and that much more captivating) is Dolan's dark and la... Read more of this blog post »

Richard Wise weaves an intricate and engrossing story replete with fantastic imagery and tactful subplots. It is as if the author lived through this tale personally... It pulled me in and wouldn’t let go—simply brilliant.
