You want to know all about me? Of course not. There is darkness. Somewhere. I think.
But if you want to know some of the good stuff, or at least some of the author stuff, read a great article on me and my authoring life on the Brave Wings magazine site. There’s plenty of photographs from my personal archives included.
If you just want to see the article about me, click here. An excerpt from my first book, “Murder in Wauwatosa: The Mysterious Death of Buddy Schumacher,” can be found here.
I was asked all sorts of probing questions. Read the article to find out how I answered queries about my writing such as:
- Tell us about the book you’re writing now, the subjects it deals with, and how the idea came to you.
- In “3 Months in Dublin,” what was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
- Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character of “3 Months in Dublin?”
- Is there a message in this novel you want readers to grasp?
- How has the process of writing and researching your two published non-fiction books played a part in the novel you’re writing?
- What techniques and tools do you use to keep yourself organized?
- Was there a person in your career who has impacted you the most or who has really made a difference?
- How do you market your work?
And then there are these intensely personal question I was asked, and revealed all that is in my heart and soul to answer:
- Who are your heroes?
- What is your greatest fear?
- If your friends or family members were asked to pick three character traits to describe you, what would they say?
- If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
- What is your favorite book and why or what books have influenced you most in your life?
- What is your favorite memory from childhood?
- What advice would you give your younger self?
- What is your Social Security Number, ATM PIN and date of birth?
I told you … these questions were intensely personal.
Seriously, many thanks to Kyrian Lyndon for putting together such a great, uplifting online magazine.
Have fun reading my interview, as well as any of the other stories she has posted.
It was a pleasure!
