Hello all, due to popular request we are giving artist/authors the ability to have what they might deem a normal interview. Little do they know the same interesting questions will be asked and cool conversations will ensue.

Please enjoy the podcast with Linda Imbler.

Personally speaking, I understand writing not only as a craft, but as an art. It is said that art is courageously baring one's soul or exposing one's current state of mind or most vivid memories. In this regard, my poetic art is my way to make sense of the world and to organize those memories. In some instances, writing allows me to memorialize some person, a thing, or some event. It doesn't hurt to mention that it's a terrific way to exorcise personal demons.

Anton Chekhov said, "The role of the artist is to ask questions, not to answer them." This quote helped me develop my own concepts of "what-ifs." I have always enjoyed the challenge of taking a photographic image, a word, a quote, a philosophical statement, an experience, and imagining a what-if response to it.

Yours in torture,

MM ;)
