“The human imagination is a living miracle: our bridge to the wonderings and wisdom
of the ancients, to the vibrancy of the present—and to world-altering possibilities.
I’m drawn to write stories about socially awkward odd ducks and gifted outsiders
who stumble from delf-doubt and loneliness toward the solace of love, who sense
the suffering of the Earth and seek the mysteries of the universe, who are flawed and
goofy and sometimes scarily destructive, and who struggle to find the courage to face
the void, sometimes finding within it seeds of renewal, gratitude, and even joy.”
