I live near Orchard Park, NY with my family: my beautiful wife, wonderful daughter, two typical cats, and one very odd (and newly adopted as of September 2014) retired racing greyhound. Luckily I have my own book room to which I can retreat!

In addition to reading and writing, I love long walks, riding my bike, and am passionate about music. I also have an odd quasi-obsession with bib overalls. If you see a long-haired fellow in a Buffalo-area cafe or library, wearing overalls and banging away on a laptop, there's a good chance that's me!

My online presence is as follows: Official author site, http://forgottenstars.net; personal blog, http:byzantiumshores.blogspot.com; Twitter and Instagram @Jaquandor.

Anyway, I do have routines. They're not carved in stone, but I do certain things certain ways. I get up at roughly 5:45 am each weekday morning that I'm working; after making coffee I'm sitting down at the computer by 6:00 until about 6:50, when I have to resume getting ready for the Dreaded Day Job. I also have started using my 30-minute lunch period at work as a writing session. Other than that, I try to cram in writing sessions as much as I can, whenever I can.

Saturdays I like to go sit in the cafe at the local grocery store for a couple hours and write, and Sunday afternoons I'm in my library at home. When I sit down, I generally noodle about online for a little while before writing, just to get juices flowing. I also like to have music playing, often in the genre in which I'm working (but this isn't carved in stone). In my library I have nice headphones AND a nice little speaker system if I don't want to use the headphones. Generally I'll listen to any music that fits my mood while I write; I'm pretty good at not falling into active listening while I write.
When I'm revising a manuscript, the timing is roughly the same, although then I'm using a hard copy of the manuscript.

I hope that covers everything!!!(less)

Take walks or bike rides and listen to music. Watch people and listen to them. And then write a lot more and read a lot more. Oh, and read poetry. That's how you learn what to do with language.(less)

At first glance I expected this to be a history of libraries, and how libraries began and evolved through the centuries. There is some of that here, but the book is more a history of books themselves and the various characters
