About meMy debut story collection, Doctor Olaf van Schuler's Brain, was published by Algonquin in October 2008.

"Life is a question of nerves, and fibres, and slowly built-up cells in which thought hides itself and passion has its dreams. You may fancy yourself safe and think yourself strong. But a chance tone of colour in a room or a morning sky, a particular perfume that you had once loved and that brings subtle memories with it, a line from a forgotten poem that you had come across again, a cadence from a piece of music that you had ceased to play... I tell you, that it is on things like these that our lives depend. "
— Oscar Wilde (The Picture of Dorian Gray)
You need to update your description now that your book came out. :-)
I really loved your book. Now I have to look at your library!

You're welcome, Kirsten. I'm eager to hear about your trip when you have a chance to catch your breath! I hope you had a wonderful adventure.
