I wrote It Often Deprives Me of My Sleep over the course of 12 years. This is the most personal book that I’ve written. While Archie’s Psalm closely resembles my childhood, this book spans my life as a writer. All of the questions, dealing with the death of my mother, relationships, all combine to create a complex collection. My inspiration in the shape of the writing was “Cane”. It is a genre blending book that features poetry, short stories and songs. A book with a lot of depth that will challenge you and engage your mind beyond just the first read.
