"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats."
- James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times

Writers: Dean Koontz

I heard him speak at the Fullerton Library last year. He's fascinating, funny, and humble. He is also miles away from any of the writers I know who are working today. His work ethic, as well as the massive wealth he has accumulated in an industry that seems to expect its workers to starve, amazes me.

Is it wrong of me to covet his library?
