Interview with Robert Cristante

Published 2020-07-05.
Who are your favorite authors?
I have many favourite authors such as Mark Twain, J J R Tolkien, George R R Martin, David Farland, Sara Douglas, Orson Scott Card, Issac Asimov, Dan Simmons, Dan Abnett, Stephen King and many more.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur 's Court by Mark Twain was the first story I read and the impact was instantaneous because I wanted to read more and write my own stories, and to this day reading and writing is a part of my being.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
It's not the question of getting out of bed each day because inspiration comes in my dreams, and often inspiration on TV, Movies and online. Writing is an inspiration to wake up to each day.
What is your writing process?
My writing process is researching depends on what story I am writing. Planning an outline and such is done within my brain. Get the beginning, middle and ending sorted out and drum it in my sub-consciences mind. Then the old school, the feeling of writing with pen and paper is holding and smelling the ink and paper is priceless; the first step. The second step is writing on the computer which is the rewriting process and this includes line editing and changes as I write from the first step.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The Birth is the first short story I wrote. It is coming soon in a collection of short stories in October
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading and watching anything that has fantasy, horror and a splash of science fiction.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I discover them from many of my favourite authors I follow or do a search for something new.
