What are your ties to Maine?

I have lived in Farmington for most of 22 years.

What is your favorite thing about writing in Maine?

The parts where I'm skiing or hiking or swimming or otherwise enjoying our fabulous nature!

What are the most important themes in your work?

Nature, love, food, and all the sensual pleasures.

Tell us about the book you will be signing at Books In Boothbay this year?

The Remedy for Love is a novel about an unlikely pair unwittingly stuck together in a crumbling cabin during the blizzard of the century. Life Among Giants is the story of a young man who lives across the way from a world class ballerina, and whose life gets inextricably tangled with hers.

What do you hope readers will discover in your latest book?

That they can't sleep till they've finished it!

If you have attended Books In Boothbay in the past, please tell us what you enjoyed about it?

It's a beautiful setting, and great chance to meet authors I love and hang out with old friends.

What do you feel about the future of our local libraries?

Libraries are stronger than ever, and more than ever vital to their communities.

Come remedy your lack of books to read -- Meet Bill Roorbach and many other authors at Books in Boothbay on July 11!
