I'm trying to make order out of chaos, trying to find some way of rationalising the horrific things that people do or the way the world is.
My best advice for writers is: Have your adventures, make your mistakes, and choose your friends poorly - all these make for great stories.
In 2008, while the film version of my book 'Choke' was coming to market, my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. That meant that I had to appear in public to promote a comedy about a son trying to save his dying mother - the plot of Choke - while privately I was caring for my own dying mother. It was torture.
Our Generation has had no Great war, no Great Depression. Our war is spiritual. Our depression is our lives.
