One thing (other than my writing) that I'm absolutely devoted to is my dog, Jake. I got him shortly out of grad school, when editors were returning my manuscripts DRIPPING in my own blood, and I was in need of a little love. So...I always say Jake came from a breeder, and I'm the rescue dog.

And while it's obvious that I do love him, I don't think anybody understands just how - ahem - absurdly deep that love really goes.

Which brings me to my secret...what I've never actually admitted to before...

Jake sleeps better to music. I, however, am kept wide-awake by music. So...every night, I turn the radio on for him, and I sleep with earplugs.

Yeah. That's right. Earplugs. Now, is that devotion, or what?

I still can't believe I actually came clean about that, though...
