How prison has shaped my writing.

In addition to having all the time in the world on my hands to write, I’ve had years an years to simply think — of my mistakes, of life, of human character, and the world as it is.  And more importantly, I’ve been blessed with countless books — wonderful, wonderful books — and the opportunity to read them all.  Through them I’ve become a regular connoisseur of the written word and there are plenty of authors I try to emulate.  Also, when writing about redemption and forgiveness, which both my novels are ultimately about, prison is actually a pretty good place to be.
