Interview with Sir Chase Hooper

When did you first start writing?
I started writing as a young lad in elementary school when I discovered a love for storytelling. My stories were so deep and moving, several classmates died from severe emotional distress. I recall one tale in particular about a race of bloodthirsty alien carrot warriors and their battle for world domination that sent five children to the hospital with turf toe-related illnesses.
What's the story behind your latest book?
So much modern poetry involves boring, non-rhyming pretentiousness. It gives me an unending headache. The world needs more silly, nonsensical poetry that rhymes. That is where I come in.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
There is no greater feeling than writing something that makes someone else laugh. It is a brief glimpse of Heaven.
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephen King, Dr Seuss, Shel Silverstein, Edgar Allan Poe, and Garth Nix
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I work too much, perform with The Lobby Improv, play football for Southern California Strikeforce, and train for obstacle races.
Describe your desk
Generally, I'll sit on the recliner in my Entertainment Plaza (AKA place where I play video games) and type on my laptop while listening to orchestral music or heavy metal. I'm pretty flexible with where I write, though I do seem to get in the zone either really early or really late.
What do your fans mean to you?
The thought that my work could entertain people is outstanding to me. It is hard to fathom. I am grateful for anyone that has supported me. I would share a chocolate milk with any of them.
What are you working on next?
More poems! I have also written a comedic screenplay about terrorism called In The Name of Freedom, and I'm working on an acoustic comedy album. I'm constantly working and all over the damn place.
