Personal Quote:

A book is a concept and a structure, and dialogue is the smallest part. You can have the best score in the world, but if the book is weak, it won't work. On the other hand, if the book is good, it can carry a mediocre score. See more »

Trivia:

Sometimes wrote under the pseudonyms Pierre Marton or Peter Joshua. See more »
