To most North Americans, February is a tedious month. They are tired of winter by this point, and it is too early for signs of spring. But I love February. One reason why is I'm fascinated by waterfowl. In my area I can witness one of the great animal migrations of this planet, the northern migration of snow geese. They fly over by the hundreds of thousands and cover our cut corn and soybean fields with vast, white blankets of gabbling geese. If you've read any of my books, you know I'm enthralled by nature, which is why creatures and wilderness environments are so important in my stories.
Everyone needs a creative outlet. That's why I write.
