“I'm happy, I would say that I'm one of the happiest people I know but I've certainly had periods of profound sadness, depression and heartache and those are the kind of things that are interesting to me to write about.”
“When things are too easy I lose interest in them so I find ways to complicate them to get myself interested.”
“I didn't want my last chapter to be the guy who sits at the piano and sings love songs.”
