I don't think I'm a workaholic. Every weekend, I invite my colleagues and friends to my home to play cards.

We have a lot of fun.

The smartest thing I ever did as a writer was hire a retired conservation agent to blaze a hiking trail for me. It's nothing fancy — just a narrow path that meanders for a little over a mile through the woods near my home.
