Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I am working on a sequel to my new fiction series about an adventurous team in the imperial world of the 1880s. The first novel is just out--Anima and the Goat. And if all goes well the second will be out before long. It is called Cloud Man.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I have no problem getting out of bed each day. I look forward to waking up with my wife and best friend, Karen. I look forward to our coffee together (which I make--very strong according to my own recipe--and bring upstairs first thing every morning). I look forward to updates from my three sons and our friends, via FB, email, etc. And having processed all kinds of crazy information via my sleeping/dreaming cycles, I look forward to tackling whatever the day brings me. And during the college semester, I look forward very much to encountering the students in my classes. And I enjoy writing too! I think the whole package inspires me.
