If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
In the mountains. It’s far enough from civilization where I’m not stressed about traffic or the day-to-day craziness of our lives, but close enough where I wouldn’t feel so disconnected that I’m fifty miles from the nearest grocery store (because I despise cooking).
How do you write – lap top, pen, paper, in bed, at a desk?
Laptop mostly. I do have an audio recorder for ideas I get while I’m driving.
Where do you get support from? Do you have friends in the industry?
I have a few friends in the industry, but the most support I get is from my wife as she has to deal with me talking to my characters in my head or locking myself in a room for 8 hours, refusing to come out because I’m working. It takes a special kind of someone to be married to an author.
How much sleep do you need to be your best?
A full 8 hours, as the doctors recommend. Anything less and I’m a monster.
Every writer has their own idea of what a successful career in writing is, what does success in writing look like to you?
Wait, you mean not every author dreams of having their books made into movies and being shuttled around by private jet? Honestly, sometimes, as cliché as it sounds, I love being able to talk to my fans about our shared passion of this world I’ve created.
