Interview with William Skyar

What is your writing process?
My writing process. Well it starts of with a simple idea. Usually something silly. I will often never know where the characters will go, meet, see or experience because in my mind I see a movie. A new movie never before seen. As this movie plays out, I write down what I see and hear. I do not have ideas months before and I do not take notes when ever I have brain farts. When I sit down to write, the movie starts.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, the name of the book series was Darren Shan saga. It was a page turner, I needed to keep reading, I wanted to see where this adventure went and what will happen to the beloved characters. I was young and this series was the start of reading, basically. It sucked me in.
What do you read for pleasure?
Anything really. But if I have to choose, adventure.
Describe your desk
I know exactly where my things are, even though I may sometimes forget were I placed them or lost them under coffee stained papers and books
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a busy city. Everyday was a rat race to finish the day and evening was a chance to recharge the batteries so that we can survive the next day. I moved to a smaller town, almost picturesque little town. It was a big change, and this gave me chance to explore different things, such as reading, and eventually writing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
About a detective that is obsessed to finding this killer. The killer is brilliant and very detailed oriented and this makes him difficult to find. The killer then finds a pleasure in this hunt and starts befriending the detective. With every murder the detective comes a step closer to the killer, but at what price.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Like most people in the real world, I too am a slave to the economy. In other words, I work like a slave. The odd times I have a free minute, I smell the roses... Read my novel, you'll get the reference!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Can we not go there?
How do you approach cover design?
If it tickles my fancy, then it's on my cover
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Freaking people out with my sick crime scenes. If you're scared or hurling, my job here is done.
What do your fans mean to you?
Let's be honest - they're all potential murder victims.
What are you working on next?
One word - anthropophaginian (if you don't know what it means, ask your friend Google)
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Who said anything about getting out of bed?
