1: What is the most productive time of the day for you to write?
BETWEEN 5AM AND NOON.
2: Do you start your projects writing with paper and pen or is it all on the computer?
3: What do you draw inspiration from?
LIFE AND ITS KALEIDOSCOPIC WONDERS.
4: Do you set goals for yourself when you sit down to write such as word count?
MORE LIKE PAGES. WHEN WE WROTE ON TYPEWRITERS I TRIED TO DO 4 PAGES OF 250 WORDS EACH IN A MORNING. I DO PRETTY CLOSE TO THAT NOW. ANYTHING OVER THAT USUALLY HAS TO BE REWRITTEN. ONE GETS LAZY AFTER 5-6 HOURS OF WEAVING WORDS TOGETHER. .
5: Are you a published or a self published author and how do you come up with your cover art?
I AM A MUCH PUBLISHED AUTHOR WHO IS MOLTING INTO A SELF PUBLISHED AUTHOR. COVER ART IS AVAILABLE FROM PEOPLE ON THE WEB. I GET ADVICE FROM JA KONRATH. HIS BLOG IS INVALUABLE FOR NEWBIES.
6: What drives you to choose the career of being a writer?
THE DESIRE TO WRITE. WRITING FOR ME IS A DRUG. IF I DON'T DO IT FOR A FEW DAYS, I GET WEEPY AND FEEL LOST. ONE DAY IN MY EARLY THIRTIES A FRIEND GAVE ME A TYPEWRITER. I AM LEFT-HANDED. HATED WRITING BY HAND. ALWAYS SMUDGED. I TRIED THIS TYPEWRITER THING AND DISCOVERED THAT WHAT WAS IN MY HEAD COULD BE TRANSLATED BY MY FINGERS AND APPEAR ON A PAPER BEFORE MY EYES. THAT WAS THE BEGINNING.
7: Do you own an ebook reading device?
YES. KINDLE. HAVE HAD IT FOR 3 YRS.
8: Who are some of your favorite authors and What are you reading now?
ANNIE PROULX, IAN McEWAN, KEN FOLLETT, BARBARA KINGSOLVER, ANNA QUINDLEN, STIEG LARSSON, PAUL AUSTER, ALICE SEBOLD AND MANY OTHERS.
9: What do you think of book trailers and do you have any plans to have any?
I THINK THEY'RE FINE. I WISH I HAD SOME.
10: How did you come up with the title of your latest book?
I HAVE LIVED IN FRANCE FOR ALMOST 50 YEARS. MY NEW BOOK IS CALLED "UNMITIGATED GAUL". IT'S AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN 3 VOLUMES. "ALL GAUL IS DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS." (Julius Caesar from Caesar's Gallic Wars)
11: What are you working on now that you can talk about?
MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY. AS I DON'T YET HAVE A CONTRACT OR AN AGENT AND THE BOOK BUSINESS IS SLIDING VERTIGINOUSLY TOWARD OBLIVION, I AM CONSIDERING SELF PUBLISHING THROUGH AMAZON. AS STATED ABOVE, MY MEMOIR IS IN 3 VOLUMES. I STARTED IN THE MIDDLE. THE SIXTIES AS A HIPPIE IN PARIS. IT'S A HOOT! SO FAR.
