Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
John Saul and Anne Rice. I love how both of them utilize the concepts of fantasy and "para-activity" in their books. Nothing like a good bit of old school magick to make the time go by nicely.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
People watching and entertaining. I have been in the entertainment industry for so long that everyday seems like I get to play make-believe. It's like walking into an old attic and finding a new adventure every day.
