Life Outside of Writing

An excerpt from Paul Dimond’s in-depth interview with Jorie from Jorie Loves a Story: Conversations with the Bookish, June 8, 2017.

Q: What uplifts your spirit the most when you are not researching or writing novels?

A: When not writing, the following enrich my life: 

  • sharing time with my two adult daughters and four Grandlads, 
  • continuing to play competitive tennis with my long-time partners and competitors, some for more than 60 years,
  • watching a great movie or reading a good book,
  • helping conserve Michigan’s two magnificent peninsulas, four Great Lakes and pure fresh water for generations to come, and
  • helping the University of Michigan and Amherst College do even better by their new students than each did for me.
