Like many other writers, I don’t quite understand people － yet I seem to want to write about them. I am quite an expert at looking tough and scowling at others when they can’t see me. If I somehow do well in this book creating business then I will try my damned hardest to drink too much, fornicate too much and talk about myself too much. I think I have already accomplished the latter.
On a more serious note, I work with those who have fallen victim to the worst abuses of power and those who commit the worst abuses of power. The job is grinding me down like its sandpaper and for whatever reason, writing violent stories seems to help me get by.
