"One of the underlying themes of my work is to examine the conflict between man’s desire to remain an individual--true to himself-- with the needs of society that demand a level of conformity to insure its survival. My writing often portrays humanity's struggle to balance these conflicting forces and the tragedies of those who cannot."
