Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
Five of my favorite books are The Vampire Lestat, Silence of the Lambs, The Exsorsist, Salems Lot and anything by John Sanford. I lean towards the dark side of life in my work and my likes and these are brilliant authors who know how to tell a story with amazing characters that draw you in and keep you wanting more. Each knows how to put the right amount of description in so that you are there in the moment and feel you are apart of the action around you.
Describe your desk
My desk is a bit of organized clutter. I built it myself and it covers the back wall of my small office and a book shelf filled with reference books and graphic novels is to my right for easy access. An authentic public enemy #1 poster of John Dillinger is laminated to a board and sits in front of me where I write. A short shelf is just above my head with a Hell Boy figurine and a large Spawn figurine is behind that. A framed picture of my wife and myself from the first film I directed is beside them and two busts sculpted from a television series I am developing fill the ends. My laptop fills the center and my printer rests on a filing box next to me.
