1) How would you describe yourself to someone who may not be familiar with you?

Terrifying. Someone in the Witness Protection Program. Types through sunglasses.

2) How would you describe your writing style? 

Lyric pampleteering authored by dead exiles who use me as a medium.

3) When I am writing, I tend to have the prose stylings of George Orwell and Christopher Hitchens at the forefront of my mind. Are there any authors that you look up to for inspiration?

Yes, but it's their call -- if they need me to type, they channel. I hear them. I just typed a paragraph from Goethe's "Theory of Colors"…

1)What was it that prompted you to become an investigative journalist and author?

It started with a personal interest in the dangers of pollution in the Mediterranean,  when I was teaching in Canada in the late 1960s.
