Of course I'm hoping to gain a larger readership and increased following from sales of my second novel, You Say Goodbye, but I occasionally need to remind myself that the driving force behind those very many hours required to complete it didn't stem from that desire, but rather a need to express personal emotions needing an outlet. For me, the answer, as with my first book, came through writing.

Having started as a creative writer in high school, brought forth through an unforgettable tragedy remaining with me today, I can easily admit that writing has been a savior of sorts and I embrace those moments like the open arms of a loved one. Whether readers of my books like them or not, to borrow a sports analogy, I left it all out on the field.

But it's important to remember that fictional writing allows us to journey into our own minds away from our current realities, so I remind myself each time I write to appreciate the world I'm entering and developing that is all mine. This mind-set limits writer's block for me.(less)

“There will always be con artists, I know that,” Warren admitted. “But that doesn’t mean clairvoyance isn’t real.”
Keith Steinbaum

“He didn’t like the idea of leaving unfinished business behind. He had wanted definite answers about the heart attacks to be able to turn the page on who or what caused so many of his brothers to die.”
Keith Steinbaum, The Poe Consequence

“He tried to get drunk, “to forget about life for awhile,” as that old
Billy Joel song once said, but the scotch couldn't anesthetize his pain
and provide a retreat from the reality of his latest failures.”
Keith Steinbaum, The Poe Consequence

“Many of us are driven to write through experiences born from pain, generating a need to uniquely express our own inner turmoil. Light-hearted inspiration is certainly an enviable reason to tap into one’s creative juices, but those feelings don’t stimulate the
kinds of thoughts that lodge within me and grow in complexity. I can pinpoint a tragic,
life-changing event occurring in my mid-teens that transformed me into a writer, and
it seems that the weightier side of life continues to be my motivation.”
Keith Steinbaum, The Poe Consequence
