A Springtime view
Well, for anyone who's been wandering through this site, I must apologize for my recent absence. As often happens, I've been stuck with my head down doing research on some new projects, all of which have kept me from posting anything of late. I do promise to rectify this shortly and give you some more material to ponder. The craft of writing is not an easy endeavour, though many blogs (most?) are full of rambling thoughts and ill-conceived posts. I'm trying to give this site some more energy, so when I'm busy I often feel it's better to keep my mouth shut rather than blather.
In the meantime, you can check out a recent interview with me online at the Penguin Books Canada site. Click on the Penguin link below my profile (on the top right) and you can either read it or, if you have a media player installed on your computer, listen to it.
Soon I'll be taking you into the shipbuilding yards of South Korea, and down into the bowels of a vessel to meet the engineers who toil unseen.
