Back to the blog
In case anybody has been wondering about my long blog silence, the reason is that I was putting all my writing energy into completing my novel THE BOOKBINDER. It was a challenge to work out the conclusion of such a complex story and took longer than I had hoped, but it’s done and off to a literary agent. I’ll post a teaser, the opening paragraphs. And now will be able to post more reflections and inquiries on varied subjects. Thanks for listening.
As you may know, I rely heavily on my editorial associates, Lion and Bear, in my work. Lion has a very short attention span but sometimes comes up with brilliantly unexpected ideas; Bear is a much steadier, patient worker, excellent at the painstaking research this book required.
