Personal Quote:

I get the thing in my head and see it from start to finish. Then I sit down and start writing it. I don't have any kind of routine, where I do notes or outlines or character sketches. I just try and live with it in my head until it's ready to be spat out.


He is survived by his brother, Peter Boam, who currently lives in Marin County (2016). See more »
