Interview with Tom Skerlets

What are you working on next?
I am doing something completely different from my first Smashwords book in English!
It is an illustrated children book about a boy who wants to be a football (soccer) star.
Who are your favorite authors?
Among science fiction writer, my all time number one is Douglas Adams.
And Brian Michael Bendis is my comic book writing favorite.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Well, going to my regular job :)
First of all, I work as a graphic designer for a big corporation.
But I also work as a freelancer in more design works, as well as an illustrator, writer, translator.
So, a day in my calendar with an interesting working project makes it easier for me to get up in the morning.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read comics, a lot of them.
Also, I try to spend as much time as possible with my family.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Thanks to Goodreads and all my friends who also use it, mostly.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
No. But it must have been a comic-book script.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It was Robinson Crusoe, at age 8 or 9.
I remember being very proud for reading such a big book at that age.
How do you approach cover design?
I do it myself.
I try to show a moment which defines the basis of the story. I use that method in most of my illustrations and designs.
What do you read for pleasure?
Comics.
All kinds of them, all genres, all "international schools".
