What character best describes you?

Eric Cartman

Coke or Pepsi


Vampires or Werewolves?


Serious Round

Do you stick to one genre or skip around? Why?

I skip around because it's more fun to push the limits by challenging your writing comfort zone. It's also more conducive to growing as a hacker of words from Word into books.

Can you recall a particular scene that was painful or traumatic for you to write?

By miles, the most painful thing to write was the showing of the death of a main character within a ghost series. She had to die to become the ghost, Mary. This writing was as traumatic as anything penned to date.

Wacky Question

You've been handed the mic to sing at America's Got Talent (or Britain)... what song do you sing?

"Kyle's Mom is a Bitch"
