Interview with R.M. Haig

Describe your desk
Spartan... I-Pad, Bluetooth keyboard, lap, couch. Anything more is in excess.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in an environment of strain and conflict... as a result, I'm an expert.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Life, lies and errors of perception. Depression, demoralization and the flaming of the Phoenix.
When did you first start writing?
When I realized that people took note when I did. Verbally, I was often ignored... words put to paper rarely went unacknowledged.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Lithium and friends.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Trying to live.
What do your fans mean to you?
I don't presume to have any fans... to do so is conceited, especially given the fact that -- if you've read my work -- you've stumbled on it by accident and read it because it was free.
What is your writing process?
I sit, I type... occasionally I re-read what I've done and don't like it, so I change it... there's nothing fancy happening here.
How do you approach cover design?
I start with a black square and I make it look like the story feels.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
There once was a lady who swallowed a fly... if I swallow a fly, I'll end up dead.
