Between 10 pm and sunrise
Something about an alligator, toxic waste, and then evolving into a werewolf...10 year romance with my now wife/mother of my two kids...then some bits about living in the land of the dirt people before relocating to Seattle...does that help?
I humbly submit the Statement of Purpose that preceeded my MFA thesis: "I believe that there are many writers who pursue a career creating prose works of long fiction with the direct aim of fashioning their work into what would generally be considered art, or at the very least, works with some artistic sensibilities. I appreciate this type of work on an intellectual (and often) emotional level. I am not, however, one of these writers. My aim as a writer is to, as best I can, craft compelling stories of a fantastical nature. If a reader comes away from my work having been entertained, then, in my estimation, I am successful as a writer. Any other reaction, on the reader’s part, can be solely attributed to the reader. I am not a creator of art. I do not claim to have any insights into the human condition, nor am I interested in plumbing the mysteries of existence. I want to sell my work for money. If my work is enjoyed enough by those who read it then, hopefully, I can sell some more at a future time. I believe that every novel could be improved by the inclusion of at least one werewolf. I do not believe that there is any shame in writing genre fiction."
