Interview with Papoose Doorbelle

What are you working on next?
I wouldn't say next as much as I would say simultaneously. There's an Android App that I built a few websites and blogs to complement. That project is in the works and requires a great deal of my attention. My next book will be started soon, and it should be a sequel to this novel with some hopefully interesting twists and turns to keep the brand the alive.
Who are your favorite authors?
I like Jack Kerouac, though I've never read a single word he wrote. I'm a huge fan Isaac Azimov, though again, I don't really read much of the works of authors I admire for fear I might accidentally end up copying their intellectual property unwittingly into my work. The last Azimov piece I found entertaining was actually a catalyst for some of my own writing. I believe it was the prelude to the Foundations series.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Not much. I made a covenant with myself that I would focus on creating materials that help others grow and learn, whether spiritually or with education, or by any means I can identify. I've broken a lot of promises in my day, so this one I hope I can keep with myself and restore some of that lost trust I once had in my commitment to growth.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm almost always writing. I keep a half a dozen blogs and other mediums using a variety of pseudonyms that are intended to match the audience's characteristics, such as Papoose Doorbelle for authoring children's brain puzzles. I used to love rock climbing as a way to overcome my childhood, or childish rather, fear of heights. But that didn't work at all, and I ended up with tendinitis. I studied martial arts for over a decade, but that ended with spinal damage, so that's off the table for a little while. I like going to see movies on hot summer days to escape the heat or cozie restaurants in the winter. I sometimes research exotic health food resources such as places that make vegan items completely indistinguishable from real meat in texture and taste. Sometimes going out for a burger is just what the doctor ordered though.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I personally prefer reading my literature in hard copies. I mostly enjoy reading eastern philosophies and metaphysical theories. I find the more cryptic the meaning of the text, the more interesting my interpretation can be, and sometimes, that adds up to good fiction.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember the first prize I ever won for writing was for a limerick poem in third grade. I still remember wondering if I was going to get in trouble for writing about a naked pig.
