Nope to both.

Any bad habits?
A few.

Current occupation / Dream job:
Writer / Well-paid Writer.

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
I like to read, watch TV, go to movies, take walks, and the like. You know, normal stuff.

What is your zombie outbreak survival plan?
I’ll probably be one of the first ones killed. Of course, it may be weeks before I venture out of the writing cave I call my office to realize it had happened.

Weapon of choice:
I like swords.

Do you have any special skills?
Jack of all trades, master of few.

Did you go to college and, if so, what for?
Yes. I studied art and journalism.

Shark (as long as I’m not in the water with it)

What is the best thing that ever happened to you?
I sold my first novel. Then I sold my second.

What is the worst thing that ever happened to you?
Lost my job in a layoff. Had to sell my house. I loved my house.

Ever had your heart broken? Is there a story worth telling behind your answer?
Yes. I’ll save that story for a book plot one day.

Ever broken someone’s heart? Is there a story worth telling behind your answer? Maybe. Not intentionally.

What is the best thing you’ve ever done?
I’m not sure. Will have to think it over.

What is the worst thing you’ve ever done?
I’m not really sure. Will have to think about it.

If you could kill one person, consequence free, who would it be and why?
No one comes immediately to mind, but I’m sure if I gave it some thought…  I don’t often think about killing people (except in my books, of course), but I could give you a list of people that deserve a swift kick in the ass though.

What do you do?
I am a writer of novels, comic books, graphic novels, short stories, screenplays, media tie-ins, and more. I work for a variety of publishers as a freelancer.

How did you get started doing what you do?
Getting the first gig was the hardest, but I got into comics the old fashioned way, I submitted my work and eventually found work that I then used to find more work, a process I keep repeating to this day.

What is your advice to other people that want to get started doing what you do?
Be persistent. Stick with it. If you want to do it as a career then you need to treat it like a job. That means long days, sleepless nights, and a lot of hard work, but in the end it’s worth it to attain your goals.

What are some of the projects you’ve worked on/finished in the past?
Give us a little history if you will.
This could be a long list so I’ll just pick a couple. You can find the full list of my work at Novels: Evil Ways, Deadly Games!, Earthstrike Agenda, and more. Anthologies/short stories: Lance Star: Sky Ranger, Domino Lady, A Fistful of Legends, The Spider, Green Hornet, and more. Comics: Lance star: Sky Ranger, Demonslayer, Jungle Fantasy, Domino Lady/Sherlock Holmes, Yin Yang, All-Star Pulp Comics, and more.

What projects are you working on now?
I just finished a couple of short stories for anthologies and am doing pre-production work on two novels: Honey West/Domino Lady and Ghost Gal.

What are you watching?
My top three TV shows at the moment are Person of Interest, Arrow, and Sons of Anarchy.

What are you listening to?
I like a wide variety of music. Kind of on an Elvis kick at the moment.

What are you reading?
This Girl For Hire, a Honey West novel.

Favorite author / book?
This is one of those answers that will undoubtedly be different every time it’s asked, but I really enjoy the work of Michael Connelly. I love the Harry Bosch novels. 

Favorite band / song?
My favorite band of all time is probably The Who. They’re great.

Least favorite band / song?
I am not a fan of rap. It’s just not my taste.

Desert Island Music / Movies / Books: You know the deal. Five of each.
Another one of those suggestive lists. Here’s where it stacks up today.
Music: The greatest hits of The Who, Elvis, Aerosmith, Johnny Cash, and Tom Petty.
Movies: Tombstone, Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan, JAWS, Raider of the Lost Ark, For Your Eyes Only
Books: Airframe by Michael Crichton, JLA/Avengers by Kurt Busiek and George Perez, A Darkness More Than Night by Michael Connelly, New Frontier by Darwyn Cooke, One Grave Too Many by Beverly Connor

If you could do anything other than what you do now, what would you do?
I would like to direct.

Who would you want to meet that you haven’t met?
You get three choices: Another one of those suggestive lists. Here’s where it stacks up today.
Alive: Morgan Freeman. Seems like a cool guy.
Dead: Elvis. I’d love to see an Elvis concert live.
Fictional: Richard Castle. I think we’d have a lot in common.

What’s the best and worst job you’ve ever had?
The best: writer. The worst: sometimes that’s also writer, but I really hated working fast food when I was younger.

Are there any questions that I didn’t ask that you wished I had asked that you would like to answer now?
Nothing I can think of off the top of my head.
Anyone you recommend I interview that you can put me in touch with?
Maybe. Let me check.

Got any questions for me?
Nothing comes to mind.

Thanks for letting me subject you to being interviewed!
My pleasure. Thanks.
