Welcome to One on One: Insights Into the Writer's Life

I've always been fascinated by interviews with writers: how they work through the creative process, what fears dog them and what joys nourish them, how they attract the muse and what they do when she fails to appear.

As a reader, I enjoy these "behind the pen" glimpses into how their ideas make it from their mind and onto the paper, and, as a writer, I feel less alone when I learn that other, more successful writers have also been challenged by creative setbacks and personal issues.

With One on One: Insights Into the Writer's Life, I'll share these stories through a series of interviews with authors and writers, those whose work lines the bookshelves (both physical and electronic) as well as those who are still struggling through the process of publication. Because, published or not, wildly successful or unknown, we are all writers.

As Isaac Asimov wrote in Gold: The Final Science Fiction Collection, "…let me be clear what I mean about 'writers." I don't want to confine the word only to those who are successful…I also mean those writers who just sell an occasional item…whose names are not household words…even…those writers who never sell anything, who are writers only in the sense that they work doggedly at it, sending out story after story, and living in a hope that is not yet fulfilled."

I hope you enjoy these interviews and from them, glean new insights and gain more confidence to help you as you continue on your journey through this writing life.
