Get in Touch!

I love hearing from readers. And I feel honor-bound to always reply. After all, without you, there'd be no me as a writer. So please send your raves, rants, and any other thoughts and I'll write back. Not always quickly, but I will write back. That's a promise.


Please write! It's very quiet up here in Vermont.

In parting, I leave you with some of the greatest quotes about writers and writing. My favorite is the last.


Writing is easy: All you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.
~Gene Fowler


Everywhere I go I'm asked if I think the university stifles writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them. There's many a bestseller that could have been prevented by a good teacher. ~Flannery O'Connor


What no wife of a writer can ever understand is that a writer is working when he's staring out of the window. ~Burton Rascoe


It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous. ~Robert Benchley


The first draft of everything is shit.~Ernest Hemingway
