Welcome Ecuador, UK, Mexico, Australia, Germany, Denmark, Philippines, Canada, Switzerland, Brazil, Spain, Italy and the USA.
While I hope we will soon be joined by many more people around the globe, I'm liking the cozy feeling we have now.
Some of you have been supporting me since TSLP first dropped in 2008. Some since Matthew Quick first dropped in 1973. If you found my work more recently, you are also highly valued. Thanks for being here with me today.
So. The big question.
There are multiple complicated reasons why I got off social media and kind of disappeared after publishing The Reason You’re Alive in 2017.
It wasn’t you; it was definitely me.
(I didn't completely vanish. I quietly did a lot of screenwriting work for a few years.)
I’m going to tell you everything. But it’ll take some time. Probably months. We’ll get there before We Are the Light publishes on November 1, 2022.
For now, mine is a story about writer’s block, anxiety, sobriety, introversion, Jungian analysis and a midlife quest for self-knowledge.
My analyst says I’ve been in a chrysalis. This is me finally starting to break free.
