This weekend I was trying to come up with a through-line for the wildly disparate kinds of things I write—literary fiction, fantasy, science fiction, erotica, non-fiction. Now that you’ve seen the list you can see why I was at a loss. So Beth Barany asks me what my tagline is. “Dark. Edgy. Fiction,” I say.
“Why that?” she asks.
“Because I write about the human condition, the bits that wriggle away from the light. We all have to look at those bits if we want to live and not be driven by them.”
She says, “Tell me why you wrote your cookbook.” (Dharma Feast Cookbook)
“I went through hell before I figured out how to eat well and I want people to know what I know so they can take the short-cut.”
“So what you write about is the human condition because you want to help people. That’s your through-line.”
Wow. Three questions. She’s good. www.bethbarany.com
