    s design For instance to show me how disastrously certain men even with good intentions could behave towards girls and women To set up a river with a shared fishing camp on it such as some older members of my family used to host family reunions To create one important character the outspoken bed ridden Baptist Mrs Theriot although the main characters except the author are wholly fictional To imagine the daily labor of landowning rural folk which I saw every time I visited an aunt and uncle of mine on the other side of the family who were stock farmers I could write a very long list of how my childhood helped shape the narrative but you get the idea AM What makes you write EH It s fun in that painful demanding way that maybe running marathons which I don t do is fun Writing is the thing I do that takes all of me that absorbs me completely AM Your first book was a collection of stories What made you turn to the novel EH The novel was my first love for the way you can disappear into one and then when you have to come out and leave it you know it s still there and you can go back into it whenever you have the time But I love all kinds of stories telling a story is for me the most natural way to engage a situation This is characteristic of what are apparently called narrative thinkers people who if you ask them how their day was will tell you a story But it may also be culturally learned in Southern families When I began to write fiction I wrote short pieces as many writers do because they seem more manageable you can see the whole thing at once and that helps when you know that you don t know what you re doing But one of the things I discovered in writing some stories in The Ant Generator was that the situations that interest me most often go deep in time and character I really am a novelist AM Would you describe yourself as a reader or a writer first EH Oh a reader As unappetizing as the idea is to me of living without writing I was a reader before I could write and I will be a reader after I can t write if I live to that point AM Do you write every day EH Every day but Sunday under ordinary circumstances Sabbath time whenever I take it is essential to health and love and community and my writing as well as I can the rest of the time AM If you could read only three books ever again what would they be EH What a horrible thought If they had to be novels I d be like that character in Evelyn Waugh s A Handful of Dust who ends up held captive in the jungle by a nutcase who demands

    outline was finished I began writing the novel Some might argue that having an outline is too confining I get that But for me it is important to know where I m ultimately going to end up before I start the journey I find there is plenty of opportunity for creativity along the way AM Texas It s big on the map and big in your book You ve been practicing law there for some time How far back does your connection go HC A long way I graduated from Vanderbilt in 1973 and then attended SMU Law School After receiving my law degree from SMU I began practicing trial law in Dallas and that s what I ve been doing ever since Although I grew up in Tennessee I felt right at home in Texas As the old adage goes when you prick a Texan he bleeds Tennessee blood AM Why did you dedicate this book to your female law school classmates HC One of my close friends and study partners in law school was female She was brilliant graduating number one in our class And yet she received few offers from the top law firms in Dallas There could be only one explanation she was a woman She along with several other of my female classmates who had encountered a similar fate took bold action and sued some of the major firms in Dallas A settlement was reached which opened the door to countless female law school graduates afterwards AM When did you start writing fiction HC Over twenty five years ago I wrote a manuscript that has still not been published although I consider pulling it out of the banker s box it s been in for years and giving it a read to see if it s salvageable After I shelved it I was inspired to write my first novel Cried for No One by an actual lawsuit I handled involving a macabre grave robbery I got up early each morning and wrote before going to work The process took me years before I had a finished manuscript AM Do you know what the future holds for Jace Forman Can readers expect to see him again HC I have enjoyed creating and getting to know Jace Based upon the reviews readers seem to like him and if that sentiment continues I will likely keep him around for a while AM Last question but two parts How much research into the First Amendment went into this book And how interested were you in First Amendment issues before you started into this book HC I have studied the First Amendment and the cases interpreting it extensively As mentioned above I actually taught a course about it to SMU undergraduates The drafters were so brilliant and far sighted to come up with such an important enactment We will forever be in their debt AM Thank you again Share this Click to share on LinkedIn Opens in new window Click

    with Kate Katelinson Did she spontaneously arise as a fully formed character or did you have to develop her personality in fits and starts Kate s power intelligence and determined spirit came with the initial emergence of her character Her more vulnerable qualities on the other hand like her fear of failure or of hurting those she loves arose through a more subtle process aligned with her reactions to major and minor events in the plot AM How do you balance your life as a writer with your life as an oncologist MMD I carve out separate spaces and times during my week for both vocations separating them is key I find that if I designate a specific time and space for my writing where I can tune out my other responsibilities juggling both life passions becomes a playful sometimes challenging dance it may not be easy but it s rewarding and fun AM My wife and I have friends whose three year old daughter is struggling with childhood leukemia and I m a cancer survivor myself so I m fascinated by your background Would you mind talking about that aspect of your life How did you come to do what you do as a doctor MMD My dear grandmother who was very close to me was diagnosed with breast cancer I then had firsthand knowledge about the scary diagnosis the ravage of treatments the joy of achieving goals of therapy and most of all the helplessness and firm prayers for someone so dear This mantra of holding each and every person s life as precious has served me well It is an honor and privilege to help all patients The challenge of treating children with cancer is particularly painful and difficult Families wonder why did this happen to their innocent child Children many times don t understand and want to be a kid like everyone else The goal is to unite all in the effort and gentle support to the family and child while delivering the best possible care Gaining the confidence of the young patient is paramount I have always tried to make the experience as good as it could possibly be AM I often hear people say they want to be writers but are just too busy As someone who could have resorted to this excuse but didn t what advice do you have for these people You seem to have made time to cultivate your literary facility MMD The bottom line is that when you love something enough you make time for it no matter how busy you may be I love writing so I make the time for it even if that means getting up earlier or going to bed later on certain days This discipline is a way to honor my craft passion and overall happiness AM Thank you very much for taking the time to speak with me I hope our readers will visit your website and check out your book All the
