Science Fiction

Mindblowingly Ludicrous

5. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the
most times in your life?)

One Week, By: Bare Naked Ladies.

No, but Douglas Adams, Robert Aspirin, Harry Harrison, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, and Terry brooks are all favorites.

7. What motivated you to write this story?

A recurring image of a one-legged Gautemalan pigmy hooker.

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I do a fair amount of hiking in the Smokies.

10. What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?

I just thought it would be good to have it performed by a different perspective than the writer’s.

Keep trying, keep writing, write because you have things in your heart and soul to share with the world.
