One word that describes your writing style:
A bit of background about how you got to where you are as a writer:
Lots of reading. Lots of writing exercises. Then writing lots of scenes. Then writing a few stories. And, finally, writing novels.
What software/apps do you use to help with your writing:
Scrivener, Onenote, and, sometimes, Microsoft Word.
What is your office/desk/writing set up like:
I write on a laptop wherever I happen to be. I guess my writing office would most usually be me sitting up in bed writing, while my wife is watching TV.
Are you a planner or a fly by the seat of your pantser when you write:
Sometimes one. Sometimes the other. Usually a bit of both.
What’s the best piece of writing advice you ever received:
You can’t revise a blank page.
What’s your latest published work you want to tell people about:
I released a cyberpunk/virtual reality re-imagining of G. K. Chesterton’s The Man Who Was Thursday. It’s a labor of love for me, as I’m a huge fan of the novel, and I wanted to bring the book more attention, as the original is very dated.
