Interview with Rodger Allen gold mine

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My motivational thoughts
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Net surfing
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes I do. Fortunately it's buried deep in a storage unit where no one will ever discover it.
What is your writing process?
I think writing process could be based on experience or imagination.... Both the process need to go deep inside yourself. If you make some sense it comes from silence...Grasp the things around you with silence and try to put them in words.
When did you first start writing?
I'm curious as to when everyone started writing. Not scribbles on paper, but when was the first time you sat down and said "I'm about to create a story, a world, a universe, that I want people to know about"
Who are your favorite authors?
Patrick Ness
For me, Patrick Ness is one of the best authors living today. I love the way he weaves a story and creates characters that we care so much. His story somehow manages to wretch my heart and rip it apart; it's so powerful.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
-Magician by Raymond E. Feist
- Neverness by David Zindell
- His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
- Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling
- The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
What do you read for pleasure?
Everything!
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I much prefer paperbacks.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Johannesburg, South Africa and in every way possible.
