Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
As far as fiction goes, my tastes are eclectic. I like experimental authors like Haruki Murakami and Michael Houellebecq, more literary writers like Yann Martel and science fiction authors Robert J Sawyer and Paolo Bacigalupi. I've read most of Paulo Coelho's books, as well as some by Dan Brown. I like the fiction and non-fiction work of Ben Mezrich. My favourite non-fiction author is Nassim Nicholas Taleb.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The fact that I have to make a living somehow. Like most indie authors, I can't afford to write full time, and I think this is a good thing for me. Having to make a living in "the real world" has provided me with many insights and adventures which continue to inform my writing.
