Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing.
I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. There came a point where I sort of realized “hey, why don’t I try to make a career out of this?” And here I am working on doing that.
Tell us about your books.
My first book is called Pause/Silence/Laughter: And Other Plays, and it’s a book of five collected short plays. They deal with some personal issues and there are lots of metaphorical links to my own life, but basically they are surreal, dreamlike, and (hopefully) thought-provoking.
How did you go about getting published?
I just decided to self-publish one day, and so far it’s been a great experience.
What is your writing process? Do you have a time, day or place you like to write?
I write late at night usually, while listening to classical music, or soundtrack music. Really, anything that doesn’t have spoken lyrics tends to do the trick. I write in spurts, if it seems like I’m starting to drag, I stop and continue the next night.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Full-time job, pets, hobbies?
I have a boring full time job, but I’m also a husband and a dad, so a lot of my time is spent being the best dad I can be.
Any advice for authors about book covers?
Don’t be afraid to design your own! And make sure the image catches attention or sets the tone of your book.
Any marketing tips you’d like to share with other authors?
Social. Media. That’s all.
What’s your favorite book?
What are you reading now?
The Boys of Summer. Such a great read.
What’s your next book project?
I’m almost finished editing my second draft of my second work, The Dreaming Key: A Story In Poetry. It’s basically a poetry novella set in a dream world, with the poems representing the characters dream thoughts.
