All my books start with an interest in learning a new topic. For me learning is living. When the “binder of notes” piles up too high I try to organize it all. Once that happens I sometimes find the structure for a book.

I work notoriously backwards beginning with the title and a cover design in photoshop. (I'm a bit of a photographer as well).

I write and write and then send off for field reviews or feedback from experts or the subject of my title. Along the way I meet very interesting, sometimes life-long friends.

“Longevity is highly over rated.”
Martin Kimeldorf, Writing an Obituary Worth Reading: A Guide to Writing a Fulfilling Life-Review

“you persist in playing the role of a spoiled, petulant debutante without the wit to realize your every action has a consequence.”
Marsha Canham, The Pride of Lions, The Blood of Roses

“The truth is that the world is full of dragons, and none of us are as powerful or cool as we’d like to be. And that sucks. But when you’re confronted with that fact, you can either crawl into a hole and quit, or you can get out there, take off your shoes, and Bilbo it up.”
Patrick Rothfuss
