This month’s City Arts Magazine features a great Q&A about The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door, about teaching, about poetry and…this wicked pen and ink me.
My favorite section from the interview is this: I don’t know where it came from. I wasn’t planning on writing a novel, much less a Young Adult novel. I wasn’t even reading that much fiction. In fact, I think I was reading this book called Radical Self-Acceptance [laughs]. It’s a book about Buddhism and accepting shame.
