Interview with M. Ryan Hollows

When did you first start writing?
The summer before my junior year of high school, but I've been imagining the bare foundation of my series since I was 7.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like to do things a certain way, and I didn't want to be pushed towards what markets want. I believe writing should be full of people trying new things, as well as employing old tactics. It should be a diverse landscape.
What are you working on next?
My second and third book. I'm trying to branch out even more with them.
Who are your favorite authors?
I mostly like literary authors and philosophers, like James Joyce and Michel Foucault. But I really love anime. I love Eichiro Oda's One Piece series; it's the most mind blowing thing, but the world is huge and fun. And I also love Katsura Hoshino; her art style in D. Grayman is awesome and I really enjoy her story!
