Q: Why do you write speculative rather than realistic fiction?
A: I can’t help it. I was imprinted at an early age. As a little boy, I used to lie in bed and dream up stories that I’d continue from night to night. As an adult, I don’t limit myself to speculative fiction, but the increased possibilities, the broader palette for both character and plot are irresistible.
