I spend much of my days sitting in front of a computer immersed in other worlds with people so real to me that I keep thinking someday they might give me a call and come over for coffee. I know it sounds a bit strange but all of us writers have our quirks.

It's a good life, out here. Other than the swish of the dishwasher (a heavenly sound), the occasional hum of the refrigerator and the click of my keyboard keys, and the sound of my head banging against the desk when words won't obey life here is pretty good. Just the way I like it.
