He and his wife live in Oregon and gave their kids passports for their first birthdays.
Who are your favorite authors?
Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Tom Robbins and Douglas Adams. I will probably re-read every Pratchett book 5 times before I die. Anything from Gaiman gets gobbled up uberfast... and then gobbled again. At the moment I'm tucked in to the Kindle Singles interview with Tom Robbins, and I can hardly wait for his new book to come out.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My love of my family and my love of what I do make me ready for the day. I talk about the phrase "live the world" as the theme of my writing, but it's also the theme for my life. My wife and son motivate me and inspire me every day. And it's a joy to spend my day doing what I love: telling stories and being a dad and husband.
