Fellow author and superhero aficionado Drew Hayes tagged me in this simple bloghop meme, and BY LAW, I am required to do it!
1. What are you working on?
Right now, I’m working on revisions on my latest Young Adult project called The Scene Stealers, and I’m writing a horror Western called Ghost Plain. Once those projects are done, I’m revising the next Just Cause Universe novel, called Champion, and writing out a subsequent JCU book as-yet-untitled. At some point over the summer, I will be revising The Oilman’s Daughter with my coauthor Allison M. Dickson.
2. How does your work differ from others in the genre?
That’s a loaded question, because I write in many different genres. I think my work generally differs through the judicious application of witty dialogue and tight action sequences, as well as a certain level of snappy patter and witty repartee. Also, reasons.
3. Why do you write what you write?
I write things that I would want to read, things that I would want to see made into a movie. I kind of have to write these things, because otherwise I might go a bit mad.
4. How does your writing process work?
First, I sit down (usually, unless I’m working on my phone). Then I write. When I’m done writing, I revise. When I’m done revising, I either release the work outright or submit it via my agent. If it sounds simple, well, the actual process of writing isn’t difficult. Like Hemingway said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
