Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
I knew I wanted to concentrate on the Short Story. I had a few ideas for novels but the enormity of starting one was too overwhelming for me. I wanted to put together, instead, an artistic experiment whereby the stories in the collection were connected somehow, in this case theme. As to where I found the them for Clowns and Buffoons: Short Stories, I couldn't tell you. The idea simply came to me as if I were receiving an anonymous mental email.
