When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing I'm making commercials, web series and horror movies.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
My five favorite books are:
Pride and Prejudice - I love description, emotional and physical, and I love dialogue. P&P has a good amount of both, plus when I read it I always want to read it out loud and it makes me laugh
Ready Player One - all the things I love wrapped into one book: loner hero, close-future tech, 80's pop culture, worlds within worlds.
House With a Clock in Its Walls - one of the first scary books I ever read, amazing descriptions and whimsy
Gaudy Night - Dorothy Sayers book about Harriet Vane's coming to terms with who she and what she wants wrapped up in a murder mystery. Lots of life wisdom in this book, in terms of "how do I want to live my life" and "what kind of person am I and do I want to be".
Narnia The Dawn Treader - my favorite book from the Narnia series. I love the descriptions of the ship and the various quests. And the end is so strange and beautiful.
