we thought you'd never ask
Here's what Larry Lynch says about himself:
"I'm 32 years old, a single dad, an Alice Munro groupie. I'm from Miramichi - - - David Adams Richards' home town - - - and if you can work with dark, depressing, complacent characters, there is a wealth here to draw from.
Editors Note: Now you see the reason for the black background and sombre colours.
"I work for a pulp and paper company and have been doing so for the past eleven years. I endure. My boss hopes I'll write a best seller so I'll quit. Me too.
I'm currently writing a novel that I would like to see on the big screen someday. No happy endings. Surprised? I'm having a ball with the research.
My nutshell philosophy: 'Give it to me straight - I can take it.'
The ideas for my first few attempts at short fiction came from my own experiences. But recently I've enjoyed listening to other people relate their struggles - - - emotional, sexual, interpersonal - - - to me. Little do they know a new story line forms and grows in my head as they speak."
