7/2/13: Interview in Potomac Review

The Potomac Review was kind enough to interview me about my just-released debut novel, The Tide King. Here is the first of three parts:

The book took about three years to write, which isn’t very long. I try to set small goals, maybe 5-10 pages per week.

I don’t want to be the person who holes up in a cave to write and then emerges–I want to be actively involved in the scene. It helps me from living in my head, which I do too much of already.
