Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have a passion for writing, and I enjoy challenging myself with different genres and different projects. I’ve currently only self published my first book, but more are on the way!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Pause/Silence/Laughter: And Other Plays is a passion project for me. It was inspired by different aspects of my life, as well as my dreams. More than anything else, it is inspired by my desire to share my imagination.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I’m a sucker for listening to orchestral music while writing. Music with spoken lyrics throws me off.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Stephen King, Adam Rapp, Alan Moore, Blake Butler, Samuel Beckett, too many to list!
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on a book of collected poetry called The Dreaming Key. Look for it to be released soon!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I use social media: Facebook, twitter, instagram, for my initial promotion efforts, but Amazon has been successful so far, as well as a strong goodreads following.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Practice, practice, practice. And read as many books as you possibly can.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Never say never.
What are you reading now?
The Vorhh. Such a different sort of book.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Releasing my second book and finishing my first novel!
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?
Don’t make me choose! It’s too difficult a choice to make.
