Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
The range of authors I have read and admire is quite extensive. On the fiction side, I have always sided with James Clavell (no longer with us), John Grisham, Tom Clancy, Ted Bell, Steve Berry, to name a few. Science Fiction, Philip K Dick was my first inspiration to write, and still influences much of my thoughts. Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle (Jerry recently passed) were also an excellent team, Frank Herbert's "Dune" trilogy got me hooked on reading, and John Scalzi's "Old Man's War" series reaffirmed my faith that the genre is very much alive.
What do your fans mean to you?
I'm always happy to hear from readers who like my work. I write to express ideas, to discover truths about myself and the world around me, and in the process, hopefully, to tell a good tale. Hearing from fans is always a good thing, even if they were not thrilled with the story they read. It's a way to get feedback, and hopefully to grow further.
