I grew up reading, reading, and reading. Then I studied psychology, creativity, improv and finally creative writing. All these areas come together for me I find, when I'm writing. I love writing - and reading - books that are related to real historical figures or facts. I love the researching and discovery of unusual connections, and the reading between the lines that is necessary to create fiction. So much is left unsaid when you find the information that you want. For example, there is John A Macdonald sitting with Mercy Coles - she writes of this in her diary - and then she says, "The conundrum."

Book Haven: August group read - Conceit by Mary Novik 103 244 Aug 06, 2012 09:29AM  
Pablo Neruda
“Here I came to the very edge
where nothing at all needs saying,
everything is absorbed through weather and the sea,
and the moon swam back,
its rays all silvered,
and time and again the darkness would be broken
by the crash of a wave,
and every day on the balcony of the sea,
wings open, fire is born,
and everything is blue again like morning. ”
Pablo Neruda
