I was recently out west promoting my novel, I'll Be Here All Week. While hanging out at the local Chapters book store, I got to answer a few questions about being a novelist these days. I found that a lot of people had the same questions. So, here's five random things you probably didn't know about novelists.
For much of my youth, I lived outdoors. I figured that's the price you pay for chasing your own dream instead of someone else's. Lord knows, I'd rather write than pee indoors. Nowadays, it's called being homeless but back then it was living outside and was a perfectly respectable way to make time for doing what you loved to do.
