It has been said that to be a good writer, you have to be a good reader. With that in mind, please answer the following questions.
–What book got you interested in reading?
I don’t know about reading but I know what got me interested in stories and that was my 5th grade teacher Miss Pepper. She read stories to us (The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, Nanny McPhee, Stig of the Dump) and these were just awesome to hear and adsorb. She was an amazing teacher.
– Do you have a favorite genre to read?
Crime and horror are my two favorite genres. I probably read more crime thrillers than anything these days.
– Are there any books you’ve read more than once?
I reread a ton of books. I should say listen. I’m dyslexic and listen to audiobooks more than anything. Books I re-listen to are THE LONG GOODBYE, THE STRAIGHT MAN, LOVE ON A BRANCH, MALTESE FALCON, to name a few.
-What got you interested in writing?
I think I’ve had an interest in stories since I was a teenager but I didn’t get interested in writing until I moved to the US in ’98. I couldn’t work so I had the opportunity to explore the opportunity to write and I did and never looked back.
-What was the hardest book for you to write? What made it so hard?
All of them. No book is a breeze to write. There’s always that doesn’t quite work and needs special effort and thought to resolve. I can’t wait to write the easy book.
