My stories are the stories of my heritage. From the residue in my blender of mixed races, cultures and world views, my characters emerge. My penchant to root around in the past is a blessing. It comforts me to know that while evil slinks in the shadows, the warriors of the world sniff it out – and snuff it out.
Can it be so simple? Deshi (The Joker Is Wild) asks in disbelief, “That’s the goal of the Grandmasters? To stamp out evil? Sorry, Father, I prefer poker. It has better odds.” Ah, youth. Fortunately there is love and, yes, it does conquer all, but not without a hell of a fight — at least for my warrior men and women.
I am as real as the words on the page
