SIDELIGHTS:

Dennison Rey told CA: "Writing has always held a special place in my heart. My motivation to write comes not from fanciful visions of fame or fortune, but from the inescapable urge to create something out of nothing. In spite of the advances in technology, I work best with paper and pen, only stopping to transcribe to a word processor during the second draft. It's a trick that ensures that at least one solid rewrite occurs before I get down to solid, serious editing—an endeavor that, in itself, comprises eighty percent of the work."
