I write books of all sizes for people of all sizes. On the whole, I write short books for short people and longer books for longer people. But I also write a fair number of short books for long people - they're for older readers who aren't yet confident with long books. A lot of the books I write are things that are true. Others are totally made up. Even the made up ones aren't entirely lies. Stories help us discover universal truths through literal lies. So that lies/truth thing - it's trickier than it looks.
