Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
What can I say? I’m an actor and an author. I’ve written over ten books…lost track of exactly how many. There are a few books still in the closet, waiting for their day in the sun.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Uncle Kelly’s Second Book of…Wisdom? It was inspired by various episodes of life and things I’ve seen in life. Look at the world, there is a lot of opportunity for satire out there!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Would writing on a trapeze be considered unusual? Just kidding. No, I’m like a lot of writers where I’ll write something brilliant, then come back two weeks later and throw it all in the trash except for one sentence. Eventually enough sentences survive the massacre, band together and form a book.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Douglas Adams. MAD Magazine. Donald Miller. Andy Stanley.
What are you working on now?
A new historical play.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Just keep writing.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The more honest you are the more the audience will connect with you.
