“You know, the best thing about being a writer is you don’t have to make excuses for pretending. It’s part of the job. Where do all the stories come from? I believe it is the human condition that makes us all heroes and villains, saints or monsters. Life is the mythology of living that creates the stories of our lives and imaginations.”
“Life asked Death, ‘Why do people love me, but hate you?’ Death responded, ‘Because you are a beautiful lie, and I am a painful truth.” —Anonymous
