On Being a Writer and a Human

If you’re looking for writing advice, this blog may disappoint you, as you won’t find much of that here. Instead, you’ll find a personal account of the what it’s like to actually be a writer (and a human). Because the more I write, the more I discover it’s pretty much impossible to separate the two. (Please note: While my books are written for young people, I write this blog with an adult audience in mind.)
