How did you know you wanted to be an author? I think I’ve always known. I have this story in me that I needed to tell but I was to afraid to fail. My wife is the one who pushed me to finally sit down and write it.
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Put your butt in the chair and write. Put the phone down, take away any distractions and just write.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices? I usually write after my family has gone to bed. I stay up until 1-2am writing. I try and find a song that puts me in the mindset of a character and I listen to that song over and over again as I write.
What message to you want readers to remember? Damn, that was a good book. I want them to think about it long after they’ve read it. I want my characters to stay with them. To see them in everyday people. I want to connect the reader to the world.
