I'm a Manly Man?

I've been interviewed at Matt Shields Finding the Forgotten World blog. He calls me the manliest man west of the Mississippi.

Heh, thanks Matt, I'm humbled while also dubious of the distinction.

But I do appreciate the interview, where I get to talk about inspiration, weapons, story structure and why I can't stand moralizing in fiction.

To repeat, I HAVE NO interest in writing a moralizing tale-I DO have interest in writing about heroics, sacrifice and doing the right thing despite insurmountable odds.

Any man who can swing a sword and talks about weapons is a true man in my eyes. *swoons*
