My Answers to Nicolle’s Questions 

  • What is your main inspiration as a writer? Which writers inspire you, and why do you write?

I am inspired by everything and anything. Just today I read a prompt that started me off planning out a whole new novel. Other times it could be a song or a movie, a computer game or book that inspire me. I don’t so much get inspired by other writers, more admire their works. Some of my favourite writers are Stephen King, Steven Brust, and Julliet Marillier. I write because it’s either write or go insane.

  • What is your favourite scene(s) from a book / movie / comic / any other media? 

The end of the Twins’ series (Dragonlance) is a favourite because of the interchange between Raistlin and Caramon. The end of Swan Song on Supernatural is pretty fine also.

  • What is your favourite book genre(s)?

I once would have said, hands down, fantasy. Now, I’m not so sure. I’m going towards horror / fantasy mashup.

  • What do you do to get into a writing mood before a writing session?

I don’t. I just sit and start.

  • Which character (from any media) would you be best friends with?

Charlie Bradbury from Supernatural. “What’s up bitches?”

  • If you could travel anywhere in the world right now where would you go?

Canada. I’ve always wanted to see the scenery.

  • What is one thing you truly regret on a deeply profound level and wish you could change? Or are you at peace with everything?

That I didn’t take writing seriously years ago. When I think about how many books I could have under my belt now I get very angry and dejected.

My Questions (and I’m borrowing some because they are just too good)!
