on the new novel

Once I realized that the most common post-modern villain is the economy – that we all share this common enemy  – the story's tension was easy to build. There was no need for a "bad guy". The evil was all around us, every-present and inescapable. All I needed to do was create characters who somehow controlled their own economies and find how those individual economies clashed. 

Baltimore was the perfect environment for fostering these personal economies. Once the social network (the story's driver) is introduced, the economies will grew and create the type of friction the plots need.
