Natural springs. I really love natural springs. Where I used to live, the springs were hot—I mean, scalding. Here in Florida, we're all about the magnitude, as in how much water flows through the spring. Our largest springs discharge almost 65 million gallons each day. In case you're wondering, discharge is a technical term. Isn't Mother Nature amazing?
Hand-crafted jewelry. I used to design a lot of jewelry. I even had a studio with a kiln so that I could create one-of-a-kind pieces from fine silver. These days, I have less space and instead admire the work of other artisans, but who knows when that might change? In the meantime, I think I'll incorporate a cool hobby into one of my books.
Technology. Who doesn't like shiny new things? I like to play with all the latest gadgets. But more than that, I like to think about their impact on our lives. How we create new technology, and how it changes us and our society. You'll find that theme in some of my books.
