Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Writing, music and movies are a few of my favorite things. I’ve written one book, Branching Chaos, made up of revised editions of my first three novellas: The Dreary House, A Place to Stay, and Chance of Tragedies.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book, Branching Chaos, was inspired by teaching/attending school and anthology series like American Horror Story, Beyond Belief, The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
A conscious, uneven application of “le mot juste” causes several extra hours of editing and revisions to ensure such a term is as balanced as I can write it.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Stephen King’s On Writing, Neil Gaiman’s Ocean at the End of the Lane, Chuck Palahniuk’s Diary, Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, Hiromi Arakawa’s Full Metal Alchemist and various works by CLAMP.
What are you working on now?
A list currently says “Record Audiobook” and “Release [album]”. Writing-wise, a fantasy book is outlined and a short story collection is waiting for me to write more short stories to collect in it.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My best method is passive advertising.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write every day.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
“Treat everyone you meet like an oyster, you never know when you’ll find a pearl.” -Crush from Turtle Talk With Crush
What are you reading now?
Finnegans Wake by James Joyce and A Whole of the Whole by Steve Patrick.
What’s next for you as a writer?
A journey through the Publishing Molehill of Independent Mountains for Self-Promotion.
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?
Finnegans Wake, Tao Te Ching, Branching Chaos.
Maybe something a bit more like 3-4 copies of Birds of America if some hope of actual desert island escape is retained.
