Spring has finally come to New England, and for this writer, at least, it’s both a blessing and a curse. You see, I’m a gardener.

I love worldbuilding for those moments of complete whimsy that show up on the page–and that I can keep on the page! I write a bit like I travel. I do some preliminary work: I know the name of the city I’m going to; I know the language they speak even if I can’t say [...]

What makes a hobby suddenly take hold of you and become an obsession? Anyone who is massively invested in a sport or game or maybe a quieter pastime like quilting will tell you they’re not quite sure why they love doing it so very much. It’s just fun. It becomes a need. So why do [...]
