Talking shop over at Kinx’s Book Nook

Good morning.

Today I’m over at Kinx’s Book Nook as a guest blogger talking shop and answering the one question I hear the most when I talk about Lizzy Speare and the Cursed Tomb –  Why Shakespeare?

Without Shakespeare we’d have no Infinite Jest, The Sound and the Fury, Brave New World, or Pale Fire. 
Why Shakespeare, they ask.
He’s the reason you’ll find starlings in North America.
Why Shakespeare, they ask.
Where would we be as a culture without our tragic prince Hamlet, Macbeth and Lear?
Still, why Shakespeare, they ask.
Well…why not?

Why not, indeed.

Come over and say hello.

I live in Brooklyn which is good except when it’s not which is horrid. I’ve been writing for awhile, and have some stuff published and some stuff not. I don’t like when people refer to pets as their children and I can’t resist a handful of cheez-its when offered. I have a burning desire to go to Antarctica, specifically to the South Pole so I can see where Robert Falcon Scott died. I like to read books. I like to write stories and poems. I even wrote some novels. You can read them.
