    It took longer to decide on what story I wanted

    to tell than it did to actually write the thing. It was called Dead Trees, it was a psychological thriller about a troubled teen trying to prove a popular classmate's suicide was actually a murder. It was flawed; it took itself way too seriously and managed to get bizarrely over...

    I Wrote a Novel Called Moonlit Tours

    I wrote my memoir of manic depression, Invisible Driving, because I had to - literally - to survive.  When it was done, I was free to write whatever I wanted.  In '76 my life was in ruins, my mother had died, father remarried, family wrecked, finished grad school...
