Questions about writing

  1. When is the next release?
  2. See the Books.
  3. Why is there such a long wait between releases?
  4. I have a time-consuming Clark Kent job and am pursuing an MBA. And, frankly, I'm easily distracted.
  5. Why can't you quit the Clark Kent job and write full time?
  6. I like to eat. A lot.
  7. What are you working on now?
  8. See WIP.

  9. When did you start writing?
  10. My first suspense was about a female rabbit PI (Babs) going after an art thief and murderer. I used forensics to solve the case and everything. I think I was 8 (maybe 9?) years old.

    Fall Dead was written when I was 19, but it took a long time to find a home for it because I was--and still am--a procrastinator.

  11. Where do you get your ideas?
  12. I do a lot of daydreaming...and the voices in my head help.
  13. How much autobiographical material gets transformed into characters and situations in your writing?
  14. Very little. Characters might have the skills or interests (e.g. martial arts, music, etc.) that I do, but that's it. Sometimes I will steal a situation in my life, but I'll expand upon it and twist it until it's nearly unrecognizable even to me.
  15. Where can I get help with writing?
  16. Look under Writing Stuff in Links.
