I relish my introverted behaviour. Yes, I thoroughly enjoy locking myself away in my study.
The world and time that I live in is inspiring and horrifying all at once. This is reflected in my writing; I write in shades of beauty and fear rolled up together in a sticky wad that glues itself to my characters.
I accept technology without having to know how it works. I don't know how to build an iPad from scratch but I know how to use it. That's how my science fiction works.
I accept that the spiritual world is something I don't understand or even believe in most of the time... but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. That's how my fantasy works.
And conspiracies? Well, doesn't everybody conspire?
