Hi Jason, thank you for accepting to be interviewed. As my blog says ‘ Complete randomness from a crazy author’ so expect the unexpected.
How long have you wanted to be a writer?
Since I was a teenager.
Have you come up against any hurdles along the way?
I’ve had the unfortunate luck of losing all of my writing twice in my life. In my opinion, that is the worst thing that can possibly happen. Being rejected by a publisher pales in comparison.
I have had a similar problem when a couple of my pcs died. Most of the time I use a pen and paper and write it up afterwards, but now and again I get caught in the flow and just write. Then my pc blew up and I just cried
What would you say is the most difficult thing about being a writer?
The process of getting my thoughts from brain to written form. I’ve often said that someone should invent a machine that can automatically transfer ideas to paper instantaneously.
Or like I have always said…… someone who can sit inside our heads, ;like a personal assistant, and take notes.
What or who inspires you to write?
Nothing in particular. Random ideas, mostly.
Do you have any other writing projects on the go, apart from your current series?
I have about a dozen or so novels in progress. It’s a never-ending cycle.
If you could be any of your characters who would it be and why?
At this point in time, I would be Nathan Parker from my novel “Trust and Love”, because he and his celebrity partner Trevor have the ability to reach numerous people to spread the word about the It Gets Better Campaign to help LGBT youth in need.
That sounds really good.
What genre would you say your books are in?
