  • Writers write. It's lonely. It's wonderful! I imagine new universes, juggle thousands of possibilities and experiences, shuffle through our senses and across the gamut of human emotions; our fears, foibles and aspirations. This is why I write. And if you enjoy what I create, so much the better.
