Every day I wake up thrilled that people pay me to do the thing I love. Writing fits really well with my easygoing attitude and gives me the flexibility to do what I want. So what do I do when I am not working on the next great American work of literature? Well, Rock climbing is one of my greatest thrills it gives me the feeling of working with nature to push myself beyond my limits. I also love just taking off in the car and going exploring. Unfortunately I am an awful navigator, but that leads to all sorts of adventures. I guess my life is kind of like an episode of the Muppet show and I would be gonzo: always on a new quest, pushing my imagination to the limits, and occasionally walking into things.
