The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

An Open Letter to Terry Gross

As the DVD releases of Lost, Season 6, and Lost The Complete Series are approaching in August, I have a guest to recommend for your NPR radio program "Fresh Air". Henry Ian Cusick, who played Desmond, a pivotal character and huge favorite of fans, has proven himself in the closing weeks of the series to be a charming and articulate spokesman for LOST. His lovely Scottish accent has found its way into many hearts, as well as his self-deprecating humor. I do know for a fact that he has a huge following on the internet, and my personal knowledge of some of his fans supports the notion that they are bright people who would like to hear a great journalist interview him! A quick survey at YouTube would probably bring you up to date on his Lost-Finale interviews.

Thank you for the all the good interviews and reporting you have given us over the years. There are no words.....

Best Wishes,
