"There's a crack in everything: that's how the light gets in." Cabbages are easily grown under a wide variety of conditions. I wish the same could be said of my stories! For the most part, my work is really a fragmentary collection of images and ideas - lovingly saved in a battered old shoe box, hidden under the debris of a life lived in haste, with never enough time to give each of my treasures the attention it deserves. Yet I am unwilling to relinquish them, unable to abandon them to the cold dark waste of the bin.
