For those of you who have been asking about the next installment in the “Tiger Lily” series, I’ve started it. Now I just have to finish it. “Just."
Occasionally someone asks me where I get my inspiration or where I get my ideas. I’m tempted to respond with the classic, “a post office box in Poughkeepsie,” but that’s too easy. Or rather, I wish it were that easy; I would rent that box in a flash. My father once gave me some words to ponder. “Inspiration,” he said, “is the application of the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.” It’s a start, anyway. Here we go.
