DC: I guess I’ve always had an interest in or passion for writing.  I’ve written numerous articles about various subjects—business, politics, entertainment, society.  I think writing novels is rather therapeutic for me.  I have the chance to decompress from the stress of the real world and get lost in a world that I’m creating.  And I’m a pretty analytical person, so I like writing mysteries that require a good deal of planning and analysis.  In the business world, I have to solve problems from time to time, so I guess mystery novels are an extension of problem solving.  I present a problem in the book, collect the evidence, then solve the problem or have some resolution to the problem.  Writing is a somewhat natural extension of my business side, and I find it very relaxing to sit and create books for other people to read and enjoy.  And on top of all that, it’s really a rewarding experience to write a novel, and I’m not talking in the fame or financial sense.  When you finished that book and have the printed book in your hand, it gives you this overwhelming sense of accomplishment.  It’s refreshing.  It’s rewarding.  It’s relaxing, and I think it’s a great escape from the realities of life.
