However you arrived here, chances are excellent that you are a reader. Maybe not of my books, but no matter: you and I are fellow travellers. I may write for a living, but I am a reader first and I am glad you’re here. I have, scattered around this domain, pictures of my pets, reviews of my books, thoughts on writing, and some thoughts best described as stray. Fix yourself some tea and stay awhile. If you are so inclined, send me the name of your current favorite book (mine is Mary Poppins or anything by A.S. Byatt) and one that you wish you had written (For me, it’s The Secret Garden or The Matisse Stories.) I am always interested in what people are reading, so brighten my eyes, and tell me.
