I've got a whole series planned and many stories in various states of completion. SF series is a big challenge for me however, as it requires a huge amount of focus and time. So many details! My brain has not been up to this lately, but eventually I hope to finish and release the whole series. Your interest is actual fuel for me for this project so thank you for asking! :) (less)
Michele Fogal Well maybe we should ask the young male readers whether or not the experiences I wrote down speak to them to really answer that question! It's my hope…moreWell maybe we should ask the young male readers whether or not the experiences I wrote down speak to them to really answer that question! It's my hope that the stories are relatable and heart filling.

For me, sliding inside of a character and seeing the world through their eyes is the most compelling and addictive part of writing. I don't think it has to do with gender or age; I think it has to do with having empathy for them. Most humans are struggling to figure out intimacy, on many levels, and these characters speak directly to my heart. I feel that being young and male means they need to be amazingly brave in order to really get close and connect.

I guess that's the long answer. The short answer is: getting inside any of the West Coast Boys characters is a joy and not the hardest part of the novel writing process for me.(less)

“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

Douglas Adams
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
