Interview with Justin Renquist

What are you working on next?
I am working on two projects: the first being an ecosocialist utopian fiction trilogy, and the second being a linguistics book on language and dialect diversity in Belgium and Luxembourg, and how minority dialects and languages are a treasure to be saved.
Who are your favorite authors?
Anne Rice, Chaucer, Dickens, Kim Harrison, Stephen King, Molière, and countless others.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The expectation of experiencing and learning something new.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, translating, playing the harpsichord, listening to music, spending time with my family: my partner, Anthony, and our 4 "kids:" Beavis the chihuahua, Delilah the mini Schnauzer, Richmond the Bengal cat, and our black cat, Sweet Pea.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I discover new ebooks through book reviews on Goodreads, Amazon and in the NY Times, and of course from trusted friends.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was in French when I was 6, and if I recall, it was a story about a rabbit.
What is your writing process?
I write in a combination of free flow form, but also sometimes use outlines and software to help me track character timelines and interactions. Mostly free flowing, thought to keyboard.
