Interview with B.C. Richards

Who are your favorite authors?
By far my most favorite author would have to be Tolkien. I love his work. It's just so amazing how he created such a massive universe. I'm always awed when I read his books. I think Frank Herbert's Dune books are really amazing as well. Edgar Rice Burroughs is fabulous. Michael Moorcock, George R.R. Martin, and Simon R. Green would be some others. I just really enjoy great science fiction/fantasy.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
When I get up and the sun is shining and I don't have too many aches and pains, then it's a good day for writing. Even if I get up and it's not sunny and I do have aches and pains, it's a good day for writing. Bottom line - the love of writing!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading! Watching science fiction/fantasy movies on TV. Collecting comic books. Playing D&D when I get a chance. Checking out cool little microbreweries. Hiking in the beautiful woods of Western Pennsylvania.
What is your writing process?
I don't know that I really have one. My stories just sort of come to me in their entirety. I jot down some notes and then have at it. After I finish, I go back through and make corrections. I have Jon (Jon Flushing) take a look and give me feedback. That's about it.

There is the world that we know and the world that we don’t want to know. It’s that world that we try to ignore and try to pretend doesn’t exist.

These stories have been gathered and written into books
