Jason was kind enough to interview me for his blog and when I offered to reciprocate his reply came back so quickly I thought it best to get it on here PDQ! Thank you Jason for being so kind to me and as promised here is my interview with you. Find him at – Jason’s Writing Corner.

• Of the characters you have created or envisioned, which is your favorite & why?
I’ve had so many over the years that were great- but unfortunately most of my older stuff is long gone.
Right now, my favorites are Phoenix and Milo, from a work-in-progress.

• Do you favor one type of genre or do you dabble in more than one?
It all depends what the story is about. I’ve tackled mystery, vampire, teen issues, a children’s book, as well as erotica. Unfortunately, most of the my older stuff has long since been lost. This is why I tell everyone the importance of backing up EVERYTHING (or at least having it in printed form).

• Have you got a favorite place to write?
I like to go into the mountains and sit by a stream somewhere, it’s relaxing and enables me to think clearly.

• What inspires your stories?
I have so many ideas running around my mind that it’s difficult to say precisely where any particular one came from. Family, friends, everyday events, people-watching, everywhere.

• Do you belong to a writing group? If so which one?
I belong to several author groups on facebook, but that isn’t exactly the same thing.

• What age did you start writing stories/poems?
I wrote my first story around age 12, something about kids being lost in the forest. I used to write poetry all the time through my teens, but all of that is gone now.

• Do you have a book published? If so what is it called & where can readers purchase it?
I have one novel, one novella, and several short stories for sale on amazon and smashwords.

• If you could meet one favorite author who would it be and why?
Tough choice. My favorites have always been Dean Koontz and Anne Rice [and eventually J.K. Rowling when the Harry Potter series arrived]. I couldn’t choose just one.

• Where can readers find you and your blog?
If you check out the About Me / Links page on my blog, everything is all in one neat and tidy place.

• Who is your best supporter/mentor/encourager?
A few of the best friends a guy could ever ask for- Amanda, Ang, Krysta, and Theresa. They’ve been my support group for the last few years, pushing me to write, and telling me my stories were good even when I didn’t think they were.
