Tell us a little more about yourself?
I grew up in Macon, Georgia, USA. I did my undergraduate work at Georgia Tech, I worked for about 8 years and went to graduate school at MIT. At some point, I became disenchanted with engineering and decided to start writing.
Quickly, tell us about your upcoming releases?
My current release is “Tales From Dystopia”. I am collaborating with Deborah Brooks Langford on a future release, “Fire and Roses”.
Do you have any specific inspiring incident that turned you out as an author?
Yes. While in undergraduate school at Georgia Tech, I took a course is semantics, which taught me how to use language to manipulate emotions in the reader. It was fascinating! And later in life inspired me to write.
Who designed your cover art? How did you choose the image?
My publisher, Barry Mowles, designed the cover art around the photography of my wife, Barbara Hubbard.
Do you outline your work before you write?
No. I cannot write to an outline. I can make an outline, but writing to it sounds like a term paper. I prefer to start with a concept and then let the words flow.
How do you like spending your leisure hours? I have very few leisure hours. I spend them with my pet Parrot, Petey, who does talk and knows what he is saying when he does talk. I love to spend time at breakfast with my lovely wife, Barbara. At night after dinner, we love to watch an episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” before going to bed.
Which genre is far more appealing to you as a reader?
I don’t like genre fiction. It seems to predictable to me.
What inspires you to write? Is there any level of similarity with the events or characters in your book and in reality?
Yes I view life through the lens of my own experiences.
Which is your current read?
I no longer read fiction or poetry. I find it conflicts with my own voice. But my inspirations have been: Shakespeare and Kafka and Camus.
What, in your opinion is the toughest part while carving your book?
How to order my pieces.
Share a word of advice with our readers and authors, if any? My mentor, Deborah Brooks Langford, once said in an interview, “don’t write for money, write for your own pleasure, if money comes, then that is a bonus.” I believe in what she said. She is a very wise woman.
Share one of your favorites from your music band collection, if any?
I believe there are two favorites of mine: Beethoven’s 9th symphony. And the Who’s rock opera, “Quadraphenia”. Each of them will survive the ages.
If you’re a foodie, tell us about your favorite dish?
I love pasta. All kinds. But especially Pesto.
List any giveaways or surprises in mere future?
I hope to write a novel comparable to Kafka in style but modern in content.
