1. What five words describe you?
Persistent, Essential, Symbolic, Seeking, Multidimensional
2. What was the first story you ever wrote? I mean the really bad one we all have that you’re trying to hide in the back of closet now that you’re published?
My really bad ones I burnt. Several have been lost along the way. Some are on my blog, http://thenewremembrance.blogspot.com The first story I ever wrote was when I was five or six. I had a toy typewriter and I wrote a story about some of my toys that were in a fight and beat each other. I think I was obsessed with violence.
3. What inspires you?
Live music, movies, good books, children, horses, and mountaintops.
4. What distracts you?
Work, children, farm chores (I live on a farm), and social media.
5. What’s your favorite story? This can be specific, as in a particular book or even story-driven movie, or general, like “I’m a sucker for a hero looking for redemption story.”
My favorite all-time classic story is The Odyssey by Homer. Every good story I know is a variation on the hero trying to get home. Every underdog is a variation on Ulysses. I also love father-son adventure stories. The Road by Cormac McCarthy is the best version I know of that one.
