    Greek sailors
    My daughter

    The patriarchy

Things I’ve Tried

    Kicking people’s asses for a living (I really enjoyed this)
    Unloading trucks for a living (less fun)
    Working as a literary agent (wasn’t that a time!)
    Running a fiction imprint (I like to call this a learning experience)

Things I do

    Write novels (and sometimes nonfiction books)
    Teach story development/developmental editing to editors
    Consult with editors, publishers, and authors on editorial matters
