1. Will you publish my book?
I am no longer publishing anyone but myself. I want to work on more projects in the future such anthologies, but I will not be publishing single author books.
2. Why do you want to do art AND write?
I'm not really sure. I love creating! I'm my best and happiest when working on creative projects. I'm also pretty keen at science so I have to express all of those things to fulfill myself.
3. Where do you get your ideas for stories?
I usually will have a flash of a person, a voice, or an image in my mind and then it just goes from there. In a recent story for When the Dead Books' anthology GIVE, I heard a woman with a thick Eastern European accent say, "Is it better to have one nut or two?" The story sort of went pretty gruesome from there. As I have evolved as a creator, it can now be an object, a scent, or just about anything that inspires me.
4. When do you plan to release your next book?
The short answer is that I have no idea. I'm working on a lot of things professionally. Follow my fan page on Facebook or check here, I'll let you know.
