What else do you do to make money, other than write? It is rare today for writers to be full time… I write and produce documentaries on aviation.
How do you write – lap top, pen, paper, in bed, at a desk? Generally I write on my laptop. Sometimes if I’m out and have an idea, I might write a few paragraphs on a notepad or even on my phone.
How much sleep do you need to be your best? Some of my favourite passages have come out from times when I hardly had any sleep. It let the stranger thoughts flow freely.
Tell us about your new book? What’s it about and why did you write it? It’s about seeing things from another perspective. When writing the villians, I really had to dig down and try to understand why they would want to do the things they were doing. No one sees themselves as a monster, they have good reasons for doing what they’re doing, even if those reasons have evil results.
Sometimes it’s so hard to keep at it – What keeps you going? Knowing that in the end I’ll have another book on the shelf with my name on the spine. I like the idea of leaving a legacy behind.
What’s your favorite meal? Lasagna. I read a lot of Garfield as a child.
