“Along the road from story idea to published work there is a queue of fear-provoking pitfalls and challenges.

Will the story work?

Is the premise engaging?

Are the characters believable and interesting?

How will the story be received when it’s published, born into the world?

No wonder we prevaricate and procrastinate, telling ourselves the story needs more work, it is not yet perfect. Maybe we need a different approach and accept that a novel is never truly completed?”

He loves the philosophy of Joseph Campbell and carries this quote inscribed in his heart: "Follow your bliss and doors will open where you thought there were none".
