Her autobiography gave me the strength to carry on. I have never submitted to an agent because self-representation has worked well for me. Are there any particular authors that have influenced how you write and, if so, how have they influenced you? Always, always have your book covers professionally created. Where do you live now? […]

At the time, it was great therapy for me. I may have borrowed a trait or two, from people I’ve met and from myself, but the characters are mostly fictitious. I had to imagine what the world would/could be like in thirty years, in a complicated geopolitical landscape. I think I hit the balance right. […]

I mean, we had reached the point where mutually assured destruction (MAD) was the order of the day. Andrei Heilemann, the Soviet scientist who defects to the West, was my neighbor down the street, the colleague at work, the man whom I knew, not as a brilliant nuclear scientist, but simply a fellow I could […]
