Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’ve written two books in the Our Imminent Future series. The third is in the works. Before writing those I wrote several unpublished screenplays and used to write a weekly column on current events.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Months Later: The Underground is may latest published book. It’s the second in the Our Imminent Future series. I felt compelled to write the story after a life-threatening event. The story examines some worst case future scenarios through mainly the eyes of teen and his younger sisters. As a result of my experience I began thinking about the possible future of my own kids and what they would have to face if left alone in some future scenarios.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I often go through passages or even whole chapters while trying to fall asleep and am always torn between getting up to get the words down or to wait for morning and trying to recall my thoughts.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
The most influential is without a doubt George Orwell. I’ve read all of his work but the ones with the most influence would be 1984 and Animal Farm. Next would be down and out in London and Paris.
What are you working on now?
In addition to the third and final book of the Our Imminent Future series I am also working on a book that explores parallel realities and a man torn between two.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’m still trying to figure that out. Hopefully Awesomegang!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Keep writing when you can.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
“Best while you have it, use your breath – there is no drinking after death.”
What are you reading now?
Wool, by Hugh Howey and The Time Machine by H.G. Wells.
What’s next for you as a writer?
More writing, I suppose.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Maybe the Game of Thrones series.
