Welcome to my new blog. As a writer I invite your responses to my work, and discussions about the art of writing. The details of my books, which include 3 novels: ‘Cafe Scheherazade’, ‘Scraps of Heaven’ and most recently, ‘Sea of Many Returns’ can be found on my website www.arnoldzable.com There are also details about several books of non fiction including ‘Jewels and Ashes’ and ‘The Fig Tree’ and other works. I am interested in your comments and in discussing all aspects of writing and publishing. This can include themes as diverse as the use of dreams in fiction, writing memoir, the art of storytelling, and the specific themes of individual books. As current president of the Melbourne Centre of International PEN, I am interested in human rights issues. It will be a pleasure to discuss the craft of writing with my readers and interested visitors to my website. A writer cannot exist without readers and fellow writers.
