How did the idea of writing a book about aliens come to you?
Were there any authors who have influenced you other than Kurt Vonnegut?
Do you have any must-haves when writing?
Time and coffee.
What is the most interesting or unique thing a reader has ever said to you?
When you were little did you ever think of becoming anything other than a writer?
Sure. I wanted to be a garbage man for a long time. You get to be outside all day and ride on the back of a truck. Then there was fireman and astronaut and mailman. I went through a period when I thought it might be nice to be President of the United States. I’m really glad I got over that. Long hours.
How did you feel when you found out you were going to be a published author?
What was the last book you read and loved?
I’ve really, really liked many books I’ve read this year but the last one I fell in love with was MARCELO IN THE REAL WORLD by Francisco X. Stork. It is a great novel.
What do you think is the most challenging thing about writing and the easiest?
Are there any goals you hope to accomplish in the next year?
