Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy is bringing life to random thoughts. Sometimes it's just a scene in my head and from that I have created stories. For example, I imagined a guy standing in the middle of the forest and everything he looked at began to float away like powder in the wind. That scene grew into my novel DISINTEGRATION: A MEMOIR.
What do your fans mean to you?
They're a huge part of my inspiration. They're always in the back of my mind while I'm writing. I want to hook them with the story and have them thinking about it for a long time afterwards. If my story can provide an escape for them, even for just a little while, I think I've done my job. I want them to see the name John Southcross on a story and know that they can read and get away for a little while. At this point in my writing career I'm working on developing trust with my fan base so that they'll be willing to get in the car (or spaceship) with me and go for a ride. Obviously the novels will be longer rides and the short stories are the little trips someone can take more than once.
