Age: no, thank you

Title: Writer

Married/Single: married

Kids: no

City you live in: I’m a nomad.

A typical day in my life includes…  

writing, editing, researching, procrastinating (usually comes first), too much time on Twitter, and enchiladas.

I was born…

to run, like Springsteen. In Boston, Massachusetts. I don’t remember much about the day.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

hiking, the landscape, the majestic sunsets.

I’m listening to…

Arizona native Stevie Nicks!

My family…

is extremely supportive of my work. So much so it almost feels like pressure.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

the late Charles Dickens, or Stevie Nicks.

One thing I cannot live without…

music.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a Rock n’ Roll singer, or a psychiatrist. Neither happened.

I’m inspired by…

nature, wild animals, exotic places.

The one person who motivates me is…

my spouse.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

childhood hunger around the globe.

The perfect day would be…

someplace secluded in nature, surrounded by loved ones and wild animals, and writing (in case my publisher is reading this).

My first job was…

I was a paperboy when I was a kid.

My favorite escape…

I have lots. But the beach, almost any beach, is where I’m most at peace.

My life…

like a good plot has been full of amazing twists and turns.

I’m currently working on…

the second novel in my Alex Mills & Gus Parker mystery series, also set in Phoenix.

Always…

chocolate.

Never…

polyester.

Favorite Quote…

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” Stephen King, from On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Biggest Dream…

to return to Africa, to live there for a month at a (non-hunting) game lodge or camp, and to write from sunup to sundown while nature marches by.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

clichés and bad grammar. People who talk loudly on their cell phones when I’m sitting in Starbucks trying to write a book. You know who you are.
