When I was a boy, I wanted to be a writer.
I think I survived my childhood from having a powerful imagination. If you can take your mind into a distant, fictional place, you tend not to worry about what’s happening nearby.
Writing novels is a passion. My stories are not happy adventures – they are dark, deep, and full of symbolism.
And today, Veterans Day I realize how privileged I am to write about things or express ideas without reservation because many of my friends wore – dog tags.
