“Writing fiction permits me to explore ideas inspired by my real-life passions. It allows me to anticipate how those passions may intersect the complexities of humanity... today, and into the future.”

“I had asthma as a child and often stayed indoors, envious of my friends playing outside. To entertain myself, I’d write stories, morning, noon, and night. One might say I was (and still am) a bit OCD. My motto in life: If it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing. Looking back, those days were the building blocks that launched my creativity through writing, that combined with my love of running, led me to sports fiction.”

The great John Steinbeck, one of my literary heroes, once said about writing: “I feel good when I am doing it—better than when I am not. I find joy in the texture and tone and rhythms of words and sentences, and when these happily combine in a ‘thing’ that has texture and tone and emotion and design and architecture, there comes a fine feeling—a satisfaction like that which follows good and shared love. If there have been difficulties and failures overcome, these may even add to the satisfaction.”


This is how I, too, feel about writing—and also, in a manner of speaking, about running and my officially recognized Streak of never missing a single day since July 7, 2003. Come to think of it, I believe my unofficial streak of writing every day is even longer.
