I enjoy writing crime. Its a puzzle. Its a craft. Can I keep you turning the pages? I love it when people are midway through a book and I say: Who did it? and they always get it wrong.

A literary influence is never just a literary influence. Its also an influence in the way you see everything C in the way you feel your life.

After all, reading is arguably a far more creative and imaginative process than writing; when the reader creates emotion in their head, or the colours of the sky during the setting sun, or the smell of a warm summers breeze on their face, they should reserve as much praise for themselves as they do for the writer C perhaps more.

      A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.  
  D      Robertson Davies




Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries.  
  D      Anne Herbert




      A book is a gift you can open again and again.  
  D      Garrison Keillor  


      Honestly, I hate when in books, the guys changes the girl's life. Like, no. The girl needs to change her own life.  
  D      Sasha Alsberg



      I just got out of the hospital. I was in a speed reading accident. I hit a book mark and flew across the room.  
  D      Steven Wright

Writing is not easy for me. The more successful I become, in fact, the harder it seems to get, because I feel every critic and reader in the world is looking over my shoulder and shaking their heads about how bad that last sentence turned out. But deadlines help propel me forward, and there are days when Ill read what I wrote the day before and will feel quite satisfied.

[I write] in a small office at the front  of my small house, where I can see people walking past. In a nice seaside cottage I just stare at the sea. I once tried to shut myself away to write a book and nearly went off my head with loneliness. I need a nice urban landscape, with passing cats.

I cant speak for other writers, but I write to create something that is better than myself Writing doesnt make me a better person, nor a wiser and happier one, but the writing, the text, the novel, is a creation of something outside of the self, an object, kind of neutralized by the objectivity of literature and form; the temper, the voice, the style; all in it is carefully constructed and controlled. This is writing for me: a cold hand on a warm forehead.

Writing is drawing the essence of what we know out of the shadows.

The thing that makes reading and writing suspect in the eyes of the market economy is that its not corrupted.

The appeal of writing is the illusion that you can somehow bring about the completion and perfection of those things that will always elude you in real time.

I write what I want, of course, what moves me, but because I engage in real issues, I end up depicting real lives and real stories even though thats not always necessarily what I set out to do.

I write from real life. I am an unrepentant eavesdropper and a collector of stories. I record bits of overheard dialogue.

Write. Write. Write. Dont worry so much about being published or discovered. Worry about writing what you have to write what you need to say, and how youre going to say it. The rest will come.

When you write, you are not necessarily writing to get attention. You are writing for people to read. You learn to tell a story, and its great if people want to read that story. It doesnt always happen.
