Today begins a new irregular feature, Endless Knots Interviews... Here interesting people will respond to (hopefully) interesting questions. Keen readers may have already seen the episodic answers from our first interviewee, best-selling author Eric Van Lustbader, now a valued and frequent poster to this blog. I met Eric in late June, thanks to my high school friend and fine artist, Neelon Crawford. Click here for Eric's site. Here then, Endless Knots (EK) Interview #1, gathered up from Eric's (EVL) responses below, with great thanks to him for playing along.
