I think they're awesome. I really want to make work that speaks to them.
What are you working on next?

Who are your favorite authors?
Bruce Sterling, Rudy Rucker, Ernest Hemmingway.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I need to make a difference; or at least accomplish something.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Cooking, walking, sculpting.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Word of mouth and podcasts-- I guess those are the same things ;)
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was a story about a man who had his leg cut off. I wrote it when i was 5.
What is your writing process?
I plot the broad events and themes. I then write the pivotal scenes that I consider to be the lynchpins of the work. Then I play connect the dots.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The Wizard of Oz. I'm always looking for the man behind the curtain.
How do you approach cover design?
I dread it. Then i do it.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
That's an ever changing list.
