|1. What is your process like? |
I like to listen to music while I write. I find that it relaxes me, and helps to set the mood and environment for what I’m writing.
2. Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work connections between each book?
I want to build a body of work that feels like you’re reading a TV show that you can enjoy with your entire family. While each book may not directly reference the others they will all be a part of the same universe.
3. What does literary success look like to you?
A high volume of sales would be awesome. But the most important thing to me would be that my writing and storytelling were able to leave a mark on someone. To inspire and empower them to do something they didn’t believe they could before.
4. Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice?
Yes, absolutely. I feel that writing is the way that I make use of the talents given to me by God. I like to base my writing off of different teachings of the Bible and try to convey them to the reader in a way that is not overt, or overpowering.
5. How do you select the names of your characters?
All of my characters are based on my family. The children are based upon my nieces and nephews. While the parents are based on my wife and me.
6. What one thing would you give up to become a better writer?
This is something I think about a lot. What must be laid at the alter to achieve your goal? And the answer is always time. It takes time to do all the things necessary to be successful. Hard work is good, but it’s nothing without the time being put in to perfect your craft.
7. What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?
For me, it’s getting started more times than not. Even though I’ve self-published 2 comic books I still have moments where I question myself and my abilities. That’s why making God a part of my writing is so important. It centers on me and refreshes me. Giving me the strength to go forward even though in the back of my mind I have doubt.
