Interview with David Perlmutter

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Not yet. That's why I started working with them- to get more exposure for my work.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being in complete control of everything that happens in my stories.
What do your fans mean to you?
If I ever have any, I will always take their best wishes for me and my work with the greatest gratitude.
What are you working on next?
Various new fiction and non-fiction projects, in various states of development.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowing that I have a purpose in doing my work.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Doing online research, watching television and listening to music.
What is your writing process?
Usually I try to draft the piece I am working on out in my head or in longhand before I commit it to the computer. I want to avoid having to spend long hours working at the computer every day, because I do it enough at my part-time day job as it is.
What do you read for pleasure?
Science fiction, fantasy and non-fiction history, for the most part. But I'm open to anything if there's the chance that it will be good and enlightening.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It hasn't influenced too much of my work per se, but I am planning to read more about its history to better incorporate it into my writing.
When did you first start writing?
Professionally, in 2009. On an amateur level, when I was very young.
Who are your favorite authors?
Jack London, Robert Bloch, Edmund Wilson, Gilbert Seldes, Leonard Maltin and Marshall McLuhan.
