He contains aspects of myself as a young man, and people who know me say that they see similarities I never intended. But Mike is a better man than I was at that age. I have subsequently met some young wardens who remind me of him in certain ways. Some of them have told me how much they relate to the character, which is rewarding. (less)

In those instances, nothing beats sitting in the chair and staying put. Not writing has to become more of a punishment than getting the writing done. Other times, I find that I am blocked because I don't know enough about the scene or subject I am writing. I need to do more research or planning, I realize. This is something I picked up as a magazine editor. If I ever had a writer who couldn't move forward with an article, I would tell him or her to go out and do another interview. (less)

A Video Interview with the Bangor Daily News

I have heard from people who missed my live interview with John Holyoke of The Bangor Daily News. Well, YouTube has come to the rescue. I hesitate to use the term "viewing pleasure" about anything involving me on camera, but I hope you enjoy it.

Well, I'm certainly not going to give something I wrote fewer than five stars!

Seriously, I hope you enjoy this previously untold story from Mike's early years as a game warden.
