I'm a member of Mermer Blakeslee's writing workshop at the West Kortwright Center. I spend the greater part of my day picking blueberries and chasing birds. When I lived in Manhattan I wrote comedy, commercials and a play.
The closest I can come to why I write is that if I don't write, feels like something is missing.

Hi Robbin, thanks so much for your kind words.
How nice to see Lodge get a mention in your favorites. I think he's wildly underrated, overlooked, misunderstood.
