I schedule time to write and I write. I have trained my muse to show up at regular times. Years of working on deadlines as a journalist taught me to use time as if it is running out.

Writers can write anywhere--low tech pen and paper, high-tech dictation to text, wherever we are we can work. We aren't trapped in cubicles or stuck producing work at times dictated by others. In the research stage, we meet fascinating experts and learn new things. Writing is capturing life, recording the human condition, and trying to glean meaning from it. What's not to love?(less)

No real hero in this book. The main characters are men in prison operating a lucrative letter-writing scam, their crooked lawyer, and the strange people who reply to the letters. The con men entrap a powerful man with dangerous friends.
