      • I read every review. I take all of them seriously. But that doesn't mean I take them to heart. The good or the bad. I also try to remember this incident: I had several reviewers absolutely destroy a novel of mine in its pre-publication review process. Hated it. I changed nothing because I believed in it. That book was honored for adult fiction by the prestigious Society of Midland Authors for 2019.

      • I write a fair amount of essay/memoir. General readers are uninformed about memoir. They think it's a life story, an autobiography. Memoir is about an aspect or a specific theme of a life, it can be about almost anything.

      • Mornings mostly. Early in the day. Coolness of the morning. I work in a shed on my property that is my writing space and the early light of day is glorious for writing.
