    What's your favorite mode of transportation? Why?

    A good, lightweight pair of trail-running shoes. There’s no better way to experience the landscape on a personal, profound level than on foot.

    Have you ever been somewhere that was so bad you couldn't write about it?

    I’ve had food and drinks at numerous diners and dive bars in the rural northwest that I wouldn’t in good conscience send a reader. That said, these are uniformly the sorts of places that I encounter characters who range from the amusing to downright bizarre, and they provide ample material for stories in their own right.
