Interview with Callidus

Describe your desk
Good chair it is really important, and it will affect all my works. I have two computers, and I love those because I can work even something interrupts me and whatever happens; I can continue my work easily. I often want to draw, and that's why there are paper and pens. Before I do something important, I make preparations. Sometimes it is really cool to open genuine book and read something or just watching pictures. I like to eat while I am working so there is also a coffee mug somewhere I need toys for my restless hands, so I have a lot of small objects on my desk.
What is your writing process?
First, I make preparations. I collect stuff like pictures and ideas, and I read a lot. I try to write in a away that it is ready all the time. I write something and I know it is not good, but I let it rest. I love to make changes, and I know I can always make it better and better. I read in my mind parts of my text to different persons, and then it is really interesting how they take it. I can do those "tests drives" anywhere.
Who are your favorite authors?
Roald Dahl, Kafka, Douglas Adams, Charles Bukowski and Kahlil Gibran.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I read every year the new phonebook. There is information like an example how to make an emergency call. I also try to find funny names like Olive Green. Then I search, which are first and last surnames. I try to find new ways to read phonebooks.

Wikipedia:
I use it every day. It is just so good and there are lots about pop culture and really many languages.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:
I just love the humor.

The Bible:
I hate and love it at the same time. There is a lot about information how people have been and should be inside groups of people. I hate when some narrow-minded people use it like a weapon.

Mika Waltari The Egyptian:
I love the story, but the story goes forward really slowly. That book is like haunting in my life. I can spot it so many times every year. Like an example, I see movie poster or someone says something about that book, or I can find it at flee market.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I sometimes just search with special words. Then I read small part first.
What do you read for pleasure?
I like to read erotic stories. I am really picky and most of the time I try to find something good instead of reading.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Computers and Calibre and Adobe Acrobat
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
In my childhood, there were lots of people and really different individuals. Maybe that's why I am very tolerant. It was sometimes really sad too because so many of those people just go away. I have sisters, so I had to know what to say. I was really curious child I mean extremely nosy. My parents were middle class, but they had lots of different readings like books and magazines. We lived by the lake, so I was all my summer's swimming. Water was sometimes really frightening element, but it can also feel so safe place to be. To me, water was a really comfortable place because all my problems were on land. When I was swimming I could not hear what people were shouting to me and sometimes when I heard something I pretended I couldn't hear them. It was also really educational to do something so much and with passion.
If you could choose your favorite character who do you want to be?
This is so good question. There are so many interesting characters. I love those goofy but good-hearted characters. I like Goofy Goof and his alterego Super Goof. I use to imitate his laugh.

Donald Duck is so good character, and I love the way he loses his temper. I wish that I could one day do exactly the same.

My favorite characters about the Simpsons are Ned Flanders and Montgomery Burns. When I try to imitate Ned, I feel it is so difficult because he is raising his tone of voice all the time. His affectation is really outstanding. Montgomery Burns is so many ways opposite character compared to Flanders.

My favorite villains are Joker from the movie Batman 1989 and Anton Chigurh from the movie No Country for Old Men 2007.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
When I wake up and when I cannot sleep any more I just have to rise. Good breakfast?
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I use a lot about computers and the Internet.
I have a part-time job, and I work with seriously ill persons.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote a love letter. I was about 9 years old.
That was first time when I wrote something outside school system.
I have always known that I can use words. When I was child language skills
saved me many times for bigger problems. I needed only few minutes to figuring out what to say next.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I know that when I start something new first I have to read a lot about it. So it is really boring. However, I have in my mind those moments when I write something, and I know it will be very good.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love to get things done, and if I know I have made really good work.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes and it was almost too much fun to make.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I want to write something erotic. I have written a lot, but I have not published so much.
Do you wait for inspiration?
I just start to do something. I have to say I feed my creativity all the time. I am interested a lot of things so reading, watching, Listening, tasting etc. is really important when trying to create something new.
Do you think your creative work is holy like God speaks through you?
That is foolish attitude, and same level dumbness is fallen in love with one own idea.
Things can be done always a better way so it is not insulting situation if anyone suggests some changes to my work of art.
Is it difficult to write in English?
It takes little more time because I have to check lots of things. My native language is not English.
How do you approach cover design?
I have studied graphic design, art history and fine arts. I know that good design can make huge difference.
