Great insight on an interesting writer

I found it insightful on his motivation and background in regards to his writing. The descriptions of his use of his Broadway/theater background and how he applied it to his writing gave a view of his craft that is not normally seen. It is valuable for authors to provide this sort of background so their fans can really appreciate their work.
