At first I determined never to have a website. Then my publisher kindly hosted one for me. They are not really in the website business, however, and it became more and more of a burden to keep material fresh and up-to-date. Finally, I gave in.

I’ve tried to include content that may be new to readers of my books. In here you’ll find reviews, trip reports, personal background, interviews, links to other sites, and articles on such diverse topics as the psychosis of writing and the aftershocks of 9/11. Unlike many websites, this one emphasizes words and de-emphasizes graphics. I am, after all, a writer.

At their best, websites create a kind of virtual community. I don’t know who is looking at any given moment, and neither do you. Even so, we connect. May you find this site stimulating and maybe even entertaining. Happy reading.
