And, as Promised Last Week . . . First 2014 Interview is Up

Rain and slush finally converted to snow, though tapering off by about midnight Sunday.  The winter wonderland look is here, but also the not-so-nice winter temperatures, nine degrees below zero according to the Weather Channel, though fortunately without much wind at the moment.  Monday morning has brought the shoveling, for which I’d already exhumed my decades-old Swedish Army officers’ coat (remember when those were a wintertime fad?) from the depths of the office closet, as well as readied my balaclava to wear with an extra watch cap over it (downside:  frequent fogging of glasses).

The cat is curled up on the bed, which seems proper.

For life, and the writing, still goes on and this is the week for mystery author Susan Whitfield’s interview of me on her blog (cf. a week ago, December 30).  See me answer such questions as how my environment has affected my writing (maybe I cheat a little on this one, but I think it comes down to what, exactly, one takes “environment” to mean); how much of me is in the characters in my book — in this case, THE TEARS OF ISIS; and what special challenges did putting the book together bring with it.

Also, this isn’t the first interview I’ve had with Susan, she having previously done one a couple of years back for “Vampire Month” with me (see August 9 2011 or, for the interview itself,  it’s also linked in last week’s December 30 post) with emphasis on my then latest collection, the all-poetry VAMPS (A RETROSPECTIVE).  For this one, which should be up all week — and with emphasis on my newest “latest” book THE TEARS OF ISIS — press here.
