Interview with Jerry Neal

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I enjoy playing games on line, like Star Trek Online, and some Facebook games. I also can be found on Facebook, and out in my yard.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Lol. Yes. It was about a little tick from Roam. I called it "The Little Roman Tick" LOL
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I can't remember the first story, but I do remember the one that had the most influence on what I like to read. It was a paperback book called "Walkers - 3". It was about this woman who had been in a car wreck, died, and came back in the hospital. The other side, did not want her to go, so they sent 3 spirits, who took over the bodies of the recently dead, to try to bring her back to the realm of the dead.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I am a big Sci-Fi fan, and also into Horror. I don't have any one Author, well scratch that. I like Stephen King the best, I really enjoyed his Dark Tower novels. It is a shame what Hollywood did to them.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My Computer. (Laptop)
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Haven't tried writing one yet, so we will find out together.
Describe your desk
Hmm... It is an old second hand wooden desk. Probably made of pine, but it is not pressed wood. It is worn, and one leg is threatening to come off. 2 big drawers on the left, bottom, one Med. size one on the left top. One small thin one just below where my computer sits, on the top center-right.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
LOL, Where didn't I grow up would be the better question. My dad was in the Army and we traveled alot.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My wife, and my two boys.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans now, are just the ones I put into my window on a hot day when the air goes out. I hope to get some though, time will tell, and then I will have to change this answer
What are you working on next?
Brushing my teeth, and getting ready for bed. LOL.
Seriously though, that is a secret, and you will just have to stay tuned to find out.
