Interview with Bryan Haggerty

When did you first start writing?
At boarding school, prep (homework time) was 2 long boring hours. As you had to look busy even when you had absolutely nothing to do I started entertaining myself with funny stories.
What's the story behind your first book?
My best friend liked fantasy, so I thought I would write him one. After the first page I was so bored I almost gave up. I'm so glad I didn't. Knothear has been my favourite writing experience.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I write something and literally have to walk away I'm laughing so hard.
What are you working on next?
Knothear. The place is huge and I haven't finished with my 4 favourite adventurers yet.
Who are your favorite authors?
Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. I read a lot, but they are the two I mostly go back to. I like to say Knothear is a cross between Discworld and Hitchhikers Guide. Funny fantasy worlds based on a great imagination.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Coffee.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love doing things. Experiencing something new helps the creative juices flowing. That said, a few beers and good friends are hard to top.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was about a cat moving with it's owners from the city to a farm. A bit sad.
What is your writing process?
I do something stupid or watch one of my friends do something funny and then try put my characters in a situation they can improve on the stupidity or humour.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My phone, it's always with me.
