Dear Tom,

Thanks so much for the wonderful note. You are more than welcome to send as many 'atta-boy's' as you like!

The Domino Effect was the first time in ten years that I put my finance background to work in a story. It was spurred by an opportunity to interview the head of compliance within the Bank of England, which would make him the equivalent of our SEC's watchdog chief. He was brutally frank in his concerns over the way the global banks had restarted using tactics that had brought us to the brink in 2007-8. The longer I listened to him, the more convinced I became that this was a story that had to be told, and now.

Again, thanks for writing.

Warmest regards, Davis(less)

Whatever it is you use, it must achieve three goals to be successful.

First, it must utterly separate you from your current work.

Second, it must be creatively energizing.

And third, it must be singularly important to you and you alone.

Too often, the second factor is overlooked, as most methods are creatively destructive. For me, there needs to be a measure of healthy indulgence. Surfing is first on the list, if there are waves and if I am in reach of the sea. Road cycling, particularly on new roads where there is a hint of adventure, also works.

One question that needs to be honestly addressed is the issue of solitude. To completely separate yourself from your work, do you also need to isolate yourself from others? If so, be honest. For the first five years of my published life, my greatest block-overcomer was taking a silent retreat at a monastery.(less)
