Why do you like writing?
: It's one of those things that just can't be explained. The stories write themselves, I just hang on for the ride. I can no more not write, than I can not breath.
When did you start writing and why?
: I started writing in high school because at the time there wasn't anything being published I wanted to read. I figured I'd just have to write what I wanted to read since no one else was.
How long have you been writing?
: Thirty years or more.
What is the best book you have ever read?
: That changes with my mood. I'd give you an answer today, but tomorrow it would likely be different.
Who is your favorite author?
: I can't pick just one favorite, there are too many who I enjoy.
What is the best story you have ever written?
: Written. The question should be 'best story you have ever written." I can't answer that one either. I enjoy everything I write. I'll let you answer that after you read some of my stuff.
What is some advice you would give new writers?
: Write. Don't make excuses not to, don't worry about if you can or not, just sit down and start putting your ideas on paper (or computer). You can iron out the details later. Even if all you have is rambling thoughts that don't make sense, write them down. Maybe you can expand them later too.
