A Novel Shouldn’t Make You Think, It Should Make You Shiver

About The Author

I was born and raised in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. I’ve worked as a short-order cook, construction laborer, crab fisherman, janitor, bartender, pedi-cab driver, and more. I’ve written and ghostwritten several published books and articles, but no matter where I’ve gone or what I’ve done to earn my living, there’s always been literature and learning as the constant in my life.

    Well said, and though I’ll admit to having fallen under Harry Potter’s spell, I gravitate toward documentaries over blockbusters, nonfiction (sometimes) over fiction. It can be as satisfying to think as to feel, and most of us need both–though the tendency is to assign fiction and art to the latter.

    Whatever feeds you, wherever you can get it, I say.

  • Whatever feeds you, whatever bleeds you — I agree.

    Thank you for the thoughtful comment.
