Everyone has interests. Some people like my father had very few but he knew everything about them and received an OBE for the work he did on one of them during the second world war.

Sometimes we all need to get away from negative thinking or dark feelings, and when I write, I am actually not doing the writing. I'm part of the story, part of every character and alive in a totally different way. Anything painful in my real life goes away while I write.

I had been writing for a long time and giving a lot of talks to people who liked my books or who wanted to learn how to write from me, and editing books and mentoring others, and what happened before the car accident was a very bad thing. I started to resent all the things I had to do to maintain the most basic life style for my family, and EVEN asked myself why I had to work 60 hours a week to... Read more of this blog post »
