Interview with Chris Mason

What's the story behind your latest book?
I have published two books in 2018. The first was 12 Days of Christmas:Geek Edition which is the retelling of the 12 Days of Christmas with a geek slant to it as one could assume from the title. My most recent book is a collection titled P2: Phoenix Squared and is a compilation of some of my P is for Phoenix books. These will most likely be the last two books I publish at least for a while.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is the journey. Other writers know what I mean. You start with an idea and you watch it grow and change along the way. Just like a Bonsai tree grow and takes shape. As the author you prune off what is not needed and guide this idea till it takes its final shape as a book. I also get buzz when someone says my writing was able to help them in some way.
What do your fans mean to you?
While I know most authors won’t say this fans mean a lot to me. I will always write for me first but without fans how will the ideas that I write about spread to others. Also in the case of my subject matter if I did not get feedback how could I make my books better?
Who are your favorite authors?
I am an old school science fiction reader. My favorite authors are Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, and Philip José Farmer. I also like Jennifer Cruise and Janet Evanovich.
What are you working on next?
I am taking a break for awhile.
