What is it about literature that most interests you?
I am interested in the way literature can help us explore important aspects of the human condition, particularly suffering, sex, love, faith and redemption.
What kinds of stories do you enjoy reading most?
My favorite stories are those in which a character takes a journey - either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.
Gabriel's Inferno incorporates an exploration of classical art, literature, and music as it weaves the passionate tale of two forbidden lovers. Why did you add these elements to the story?
I am very interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements along with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.
