Interview with Seth Garrick
Describe your desk
[laughs] Like a toy chest from every era blew up on it. I have items that make me smile on my desk. It helps fuel inspiration for my work.
When did you first start writing?
The age of twelve. Instead of attending pep rallies and sporting events, I was the quiet kid who wrote poems and short stories.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My passion for it. Also, being rejected my publishers helps, too.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Getting to the heart of my reader and them telling me about it.
What do your fans mean to you?
What are you working on next?
A gay fiction novel about the average gay man.
Who are your favorite authors?
Right now, it would have to be Marcia Muller, Ransom Riggs, David Sedaris, J.E. Bolton, and Erin Morgenstern.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Chilling out, reading, wine tasting, etc.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I was eight and wrote a short play about a bunch of animal friends saving a kingdom from a monster.
What is your writing process?
When it hits me, I write. Never rushing the process is key.
What do you read for pleasure?
Anything that takes me away from the real world.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Seeing what the new day brings.
