While I am writing a novel it feels as if I am alone deep in an underwater cave. The only way someone could join me would be if I could tell them the story, the characters, the themes, the ideas. I’d have to describe the shape of it and feel of it and those thoughts and images that are still half-formed and if I could do that I’d have written the novel.

But when it is finished it’s no longer just me and the book but you, the reader, too. If you read one of my novels I hope you enjoy it and that you find what you’re looking for on my website.
