From THE MAN WHO DID TOO MUCH:
As Dr. Cannon entered her office that morning, she almost didn't see the man in the perfectly pressed trench coat sitting quietly in the chair in the corner. She glanced back at the receptionist, who showed no sign that she knew he was there. But he was there, sitting where he would see her before she saw him. Neat, quiet, exuding control like a goddamn spy. Exactly what you'd expect from Gwen's description, except Dr. Cannon had pictured him carrying a lance.
I attended Clarion in 1982, when I was way to young to know what I was getting into. It has taken me thirty years to put together all I learned in that mind-blowing experience.
Since then I've written and published stories for children, fantasy fiction, and mysteries. I've had a play produced and read scripts for a living. Always a little odd in my choices, always between genres, but always loving my work. So sue me. (No, don't sue me. I really just want to concentrate on my writing....)
