What does it matter?

Believe it or not, this is a portrait of a saint. Saint Michael, in fact. It's by the Italian Baroque artist Cesare Dandini (1596-1657). I know little about classical art and its conventions, very, very little about saints, and nothing at all about...

Right now, I'm looking at an image of the Hindu god Ganesh. He sits on my printer, just four inches high, a brassy gold with Hindi or Sanskrit -- I don't know which -- lettering beneath it. He was a gift from a Nepali student who knew kindred spirits when he saw them....

Fairy tales. I love them. Cinderella? Yes! But not that drippy Disney version. The real one. You know, the one when the doves land on the stepsisters' shoulders and peck their eyes out. Sleeping Beauty? Why not? Frankly, right about now I'd love the chance to sleep for...

Ideas. Where do they come from? This is a question that authors are frequently asked, and one I've aways found perplexing since writers get their ideas in the same way that non-writers get theirs.  I mean, it's not like we have an Idea Box  that we've hidden under the...

Some of you may know that I am a faculty mentor at Lesley University's Low Residency Program in Creative Writing.  For ten days the students and faculty mentors are engaged in seminars, workshops, panel discussions, readings -- the whole nine yards. Before this exhaust...

I love a book that makes me laugh out loud -- and I don't mean the now meaningless LOL, which seems to me the blah equivalent of "Yeah, funny." I mean a book that causes me to bust out in a big, fat, bellowing guffaw .

I also love me some pirates. Even better when...

It's that Monday again. Of the every other kind, I mean, the one when I am supposed to post. But because this interview appeared online today,  and because I don't want to clog the arteries of the cybercorps with Me Cholesterol, I'll let the interview serve as a substi...
