Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m a full-time soldier and a part time author and video game developer. This is my thirteenth e-book.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Ninja Gaiden (1989): 90 design tips from an 8-Bit Classic. I’ve been analyzing classic video games in order to improve my own game design skills, and I thought other people may like the information I’ve been discovering.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I do about 90% of my writing on my phone, which allows me to put down ideas on paper as soon as I get them.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Far too many to count, but authors like Malcolm Gladwell and Jon Ronson come to mind.
What are you working on now?
I am continuing work on my game design books.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Awesome Gang, of course!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Keep writing, publishing, and promoting. The more you do it, the better you’ll get, and the faster you’ll be able to see a return on your work.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
If you want to be great, figure out the price for greatness. Then pay it.
What are you reading now?
A series of books on art and music in video games.
What’s next for you as a writer?
More game-themed books. Lot’s of them.
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?
I would just bring a Kindle and a solar power generator.
