Who are your favorite authors?
I have a number and from different Genre's, but most of them all share one thing. They are (and were) all prophetic in nature, in some way: George Orwell ("1984"), Dr. Deming ("The 14 Points"), Aldous Huxley ("Brave New World"), Issac Asimov ("First Foundation"), Ayn Rand ("Anthem" and "The Fountainhead", ps..I disliked many of her other works), Jared Diamond ("Guns, Germs and Steel").
In addition, the philosophical works of Mortimer Adler ("Ten Philosophical Mistakes", "Truth in Religion") are especially meaningful. Plus the historians John Keegan ("The Mask of Command", "World War I"), Michael Grant (vis-a-vis Seutonius, Seneca, Livy on "The Twelve Caesars") and Shelby Foote ("Stars in Their Courses") are favorites of mine.
But my real love is poetry. I enjoy many modern poets (Bukowski, Collins, Dickey, Heaney, Dylan Thomas, Frost), the Spanish poets (F.G. Lorca, Pablo Naruda) and of course - the beat poets (Ginsberg, Kerouac, Burroughs). Plus anything by Shakespeare is genius.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm always writing but any time I can get to spent with my family and friends - eating, drinking, relaxing, etc is time well spent.
