It's true. I wanted to take my frustration with republican party nonsense and transform it into something wicked and funny. I found the experience cathartic.
Aren't you worried about alienating half your audience?
No, I've been operating under the assumption that republicans don't read.
So you don't fear a conservative backlash?
As Donald Trump says, all publicity is good publicity.
But you don't actually want to see republicans eaten by dinosaurs, do you?
Of course not. Some of my closest friends and family members are conservatives. Please remember, no republicans were harmed in the making of this book.
Dinosaur Ghost marks the second time you've written a novella in which a person has sex with a dinosaur. (The other being the romance parody, The Oiliest Secret.) What's up with that?
I'm pretty sure I invented dinosaur erotica.
Neither story is particularly erotic.
Oh then never mind.
So why did you do it?
I wrote both books at the same time--alternating chapters--and they ended up merging into one book with that scene as the climax. I eventually separated the two stories and made a few changes, but that aspect remained.
Any plans to continue exploring that theme in the future?
Nope. I think it's all out of my system.
So what are you working on now?
I always have several projects in the works. I'm about to publish three horror stories as an eBook under the title Split. I'm also working on a humorous novel about a southerner who is brought back from the dead by a deranged medical school dropout. It's called Frankenbubba. Another is a mainstream novel called Blood Cries.
Thanks for your time.
