»I like to write action, and I enjoy stripping a story down to its essentials, so it runs lean and mean. Some reviewers have said they’d like a breather once in a while, to spend some time with the characters when they’re not speeding the plot along. I understand that, and in some cases in the past, I’ve written those scenes and then taken them out.«
