I’ve had several conversations lately with a variety of people and, through these, I have come to realize that my first book, Among the Neshelim, bears a strong resemblance to my personality. Getting to know me is often a difficult prospect, as reading my work can be, because at first it seems overly complicated and very confusing (some people give up at this point – because it’s too hard). However, the farther in you go, the more you acclimate, and then you start to figure things out. This is usually the point where you start to realize that I (and my book) can be very dark, and kind of disturbing in places. Honestly, this is the place where a lot of people stop. Neither I, nor what I write, are comfortable or safe. Don’t misunderstand me, this is not a bad thing, but it is a thing that a lot of people don’t seem to be interested in.
However, if you continue to press on (either in getting to know me, or in reading my book) you will realize that there is something wonderful there, and all the complicated, confusing, dark, disturbing, scary, and uncomfortable things are a part of it. Press on to the end, and you will realize that the more you get, the more you want…I guess I’m just addictive like that ;). So, I am like my writing. Are you like yours? Tell me how.
