Love Factor #9, poetry, Dec 1, 2007

Birthdate? May 18.

When did you start writing? Oh, let me see...I guess in my twenties-say 24.

When and what and where did you first get published? In my twenties - a play review in a local newspaper.

Why do you write? Joy. Creation. To feel important.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? Habit, plus the power the images and metaphors offer.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? Favorite author? Robert Parker or Lois McMaster Bujold.

Your favorite story? That I wrote? "Next Year in Buffalo Commons" (not yet published).

That I've read? Where the Wild Things Are or Those Who Walk Away From Omelas.

What are you trying to say with your fiction? Alas, there is no coherent or conscious message; maybe that joy is possible.
