Hey Mike:

Thanks greatly for the kind words, they're much appreciated! Especially glad that you dug "Voice C."

I also enjoyed "Voice C," one of the first stories to produce a genuine chill in me in quite some time. It is also an admirable example of tight writing. Just curious; do you outline before you begin a project or do you prefer the more intuitive approach?

Hi John:

I outline the barest minimum when working on novels, and not at all on short stories. I follow my guts and, if I hit a wall, I go back and try to figure out where I went wrong. But for the most part, I start with a concept, image, scene, or mood that's already in the middle of tension and run it out to the end.

Thanks for the note, much appreciated.
