Creative Writer at Large
"Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm"
Thanks for visiting. Every writer has a specific impetus for his or her work. For some, it is a day job and for others it is a luxury. I fall between these two extremes. Professionally, I work as an economist and my main responsibility is to pen a daily essay about the European economy and its financial markets for the benefit of professional market participants. I also write fiction, however, and this space is devoted to that part of my work. Like any creative process, inspiration comes in bursts, but I have—perhaps stupidly—convinced myself that the stories and characters I create deserve a more lasting cameo in print, rather than remain fleeting ideas in my head. The quote above, ascribed to Winston Churchill, describes my approach to many things, especially writing. Failure, frustration and fatigue are guaranteed, and success is nothing but a dim and distant opportunity. But if you're writer too, you know exactly what I mean when I say that you have to keep writing.
I have tried to keep this place as simple as possible. You can find a more detailed description of my work and who I am on the About page above, were you can also find out how to contact me. In the blog A Writer's Admissions, I provide sporadic updates on my writing, challenges, the occasional review, and other observations pertaining to my experience as a fictional writer. Finally, you can find information about my work and resources by clicking through the links above.
