I like to write fiction that is so realistic that the reader isn’t quite sure, and true to life stories that are so inconceivable as not to be believed. I love to blur the lines. Mark Twain said, “Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; truth isn’t.” As usual, I find Mr. Twain to be witty as well as wise. In fact, my memoirs are full of fiction and my fiction is filled with true stories; interwoven within the narrative. Maybe it’s because no matter what I write, it is life and all that goes along with it that inspires me, and the resulting stories are the byproduct. Either way, as long as I’m living, I cannot imagine the day when I run out of material.
