The characters that populate my stories are linked by lassitude, bad luck, poor decision-making skills, and a dash of charm. Lately, I've become drawn to the idea of creating an air-tight believable world, exactly like our life as we know it, and then injecting a hint of the magical. I tend to include characters who possess talents that a comic book fan might call superpowers. And they always manage to push back at a crisis. Whether it’s confronting the man who portrays Santa Claus at a year-round Christmas-themed amusement park or learning to punch in the Underground Punch Market, they discover that even regular people can be heroes.
