In response to Magdalena Ball's meme:
1. What is the working title of your current work-in-progress/next
The novel I'm working on is called: The Bishop, the Gypsy and the Dancing Bear...It refers to a little story at the heart of the book,about the last of the wild bears......
Where did the idea come from?
The idea...well, I guess it came from a gzillion places.... But way back when I started, I wanted to write about wildernesses inside cities and other places where you wouldn't expect to find them. I really can't remember the process that made the jump to the idea of the Insiders and the Outsiders, but I have been acutely interested in the story of asylum seekers for more than a decade....
