What are your favorite books?
Brian Jacques will always be a favorite of mine. His Redwall series was probably my most read growing up until I found Orson Scott Card. But in addition to that, I have quite an eclectic collection of favorite books from the Nine Princes of Amber and the Golden Compass, to Grapes of Wrath and Life of Pi, to Momo and Howls Moving Castle, as well as The Book Thief and All’s Quiet on the Western Front.
Where do your ideas come from?
It used to be dreams. I dream vividly almost every night. Now, I get ideas from a variety of places. Sometimes it’s an article I’ve read, a conversation I’ve had, a bit of poetry, art, it can really be anything.
