Interview with Arrand Pritchard

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Sunshine.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Working, watching movies, spending time with friends and family, playing tennis.
What is your writing process?
Finding the inspiration, then finding a structure, finding a meaning then write, re-write and re-write.
How do you approach cover design?
Finding a striking simple image and messing around.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I haven't found one yet.
What's the story behind your latest book?
This started off as an off-the-wall discussion with my eldest son. We often have crazy ideas that we bat around and this one just had a few words written down. Some of the jokes and crazy ideas are embedded with the main plot. The story developed from there. The characters developed their own lives and personalities over time driven by their minor personality flaws. I ended up wanting the heroes of the story to have their own private inner battles but nothing of the usual extremes such as being orphaned or receiving bad treatment but much more quirky and more relatable.
What are you working on next?
I have many different projects on the go, it is often difficult to know what to spend time on.

Aaron was reluctant to get involved in the University Mad Scientist Society. But perhaps it was just what he needed to win back his girlfriend (and in the process stop the hijacking of the whole space-time continuum). You have to read this book now to make sure it hasn't already happened!
