What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
boredom
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
referrals from friends
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
boys on the ottawa; ( my own submarine.)
30 yrs later yes, someone has gotten paid for this. It wasn't me.
What is your writing process?
frantic writing, then polish. 2000 wds a day quota., a novel every 3 months or so.
10,000 wds a week.
write, polish, rewrite tomorrow, weekly grind, half-done review, and rewrite after finished.
plus readers pointing out what I manage to miss. (thank various gods for them)
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
sf novel, the elders, 2d grade. beat captain kangaroo all to bits
What are your five favorite books, and why?
So hows the underling thing going for ya, dilbert comic.

Feist, magicians end.
COOK: SWEET SILVER BLUES
PRACHETTE: SMALL GODS
HOLT ": NOTHING BUT BLUE SKIES.
What do you read for pleasure?
COMICS. (my bathroom has TWO libraries.)
What is your e-reading device of choice?
computer
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
friends
Describe your desk
stained.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
ott.ont.can (Love seaports. van, calgary, edmonton are also places I've spent years in)
lots of action reserved for elites here in canada's capital
gov't, universities, industry, and it's the 2'd largest publisher in canada.

You need a rec or you get nowhere. Every proposal I've ever made here has been handed over to favourites to do;
In all areas. Movie ideas re-appear; Story subs for the newspapers get done by flakes.
Cartooning for the federal gov't pubs; e-works vanish.
all ideas evaporate, get their serial numbers filed off and assigned to the connected.
back in the day lost subs hit 100% from minor eds, too.

You NEED recommendations or you're dead before you even start. (other writers, eds, blue-bloods)
you're connected, on the best seller list or insane to do this.
When did you first start writing?
1st grade
What's the story behind your latest book?
evolution
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Do enough art-work and my eyes tingle and zap; writing is mostly the fun of figuring out what happens next.
(I do love a good story; laughing while writing happens fairly often) if you don't fall over laughing at least once reading this, the book is a failure.
What do your fans mean to you?
Feedback and in an almost mystic way.
( they drive me crazy, actually)
