I've built and remodeled houses and helped plant more than a million trees. I'm also the author of several award-winning children's books published the more traditional way, five picture books and four novels for the young - and young at heart.

But as publishing has changed, I've changed too. I've started writing for adults and let myself get a little wackier.

I draw from everyone I’ve known, everything I’ve seen, and sometimes from things I’ve read about in the news. But these sources give me just the physical layout, potential action and situations. For the deeper stuff, I feel writing novels is a lot like method acting, with me playing all the parts. I have to draw from my own emotions. They’re the only ones I know well enough.(less)

But sometimes I know what I’ve written is wrong so I can’t go any further with the story until I figure out what’s wrong and revise, which can take some getting away from my desk for a while. I feel my writing always benefits from some time away from it so that I can come to it with fresh eyes.(less)

The Backstory Part 1

I’ve decided to try writing a blog here—since I’m getting nowhere with the book I’ve been working on. This entry is my backstory—it’s on my website as the first half of “The Backstory”—and I’ve written it at least partly to remind myself of all the books I’ve written—yes, I have managed to pull books together in the past even though that skill eludes me now. How did I do that? Why did I do it? An Read more of this blog post »
