As a writer, I enjoy receiving feedback from readers, booksellers, and librarians. The easiest way to contact me is through Facebook and Twitter, but feel free to send an email and I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as I can. Please bear in mind, though, that writing comes first, and it may take me a little while.
