What inspires you to write?
The compulsion to express an aesthetic or moral idea.
Tell us about your writing process.
My writing process is a bit unconventional. I rarely if ever write my essays from beginning to end in sequence; instead I piece them together from brief sentence fragments, which gradually coalesce into a coherent form. On any given day I might spend more time studying my subject matter than actually writing. Samuel Johnson once said that a person has to read a whole shelf full of books in order to write one book.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
The publication of my book came about by means of a screenwriting contest I entered.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I hope it will survive – I love the tangible feel of a book.
What genres do you write?: screenplay, humor
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
