Interview With Author Nick Mann
Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
In middle school and high school, I would have described myself as a taekwondo athlete, but I’ve put that to the side to chase my goal of becoming a screenwriter. I am a university student on a combined course to get an MFA in screenwriting. I have written one book – a collection of short stories.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
“Lost Thoughts” is my one and only book. During my first year of college I studied lots of short stories, and they awed me. Naturally I wanted to try my hand.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
If my story takes place at night, I only work on that story at night.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Ray Bradbury and Alexandre Dumas
What are you working on now?
Creating individual short stories
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Hopefully Awesome Gang
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I’m new to the game myself.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
What’s next for you as a writer?
A series of sci-fi short stories is next on the list.
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?
The Bible, the Norton Anthology, Anne Frank’s Diary, and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
