I write from dreams, notions, desires, films, what I'm reading, who I'm talking to, what I see in passing for 10 seconds while driving, old photos, pieces of quotes, daydreaming, looking into my daughter's eyes.
Mary Gaitskill, Amy Bloom, Alice Walker, Cormac McCarthy, Aimee Bender, Charles Baxter, George Saunders, Joan Didion, Jean Rhys. Always reading. Favorites list continues to grow.
