In today’s tech savvy world, most writers use a computer or laptop. Have you ever written parts of your book on paper?
Yes I took continuity notes in my journal of character name changes, and a rough outline.
Do you have another profession besides writing?
Yes, representing talent and producing films.
How long have you been writing?
Not long, though in my early twenties I had a number of narrative poems published. I just discovered the pen now at my ripe old age.
Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you overcome it?
What is your next project?
A continuation of Michael’s story from “A Reservoir Man.” The title is tentatively “Reflections.”
What genre do you write and why?
Fictional memoir because I find them to be more emotional and truthful, I can share my insights with the reader.
What is the last great book you’ve read?
I don’t read anymore. I read most of the masters and learned from their insight. I had read so many books until I arrived at “Celine’s Journey To The End of The Night.” I arrived at the end of the search and a different one began. There are many good writers today but I learned their insights long ago, and other than a change of costumes, they reach the same reality, maybe in a different language.
