Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I ride across the petulance-ridden, Midwestern prairies with my theatre company, FireBelly Rep, in search of the unadulterated truth, the blood of the vultures, and pistachio pudding.
I've written six books.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Constantine Johnson: Pet Exorcist.
It was inspired by cants, demons, and high school.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Yeah. I finish my shit.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
John Dies at the End by David Wong, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Stiff by Mary Roach. Palahniuk, Bukowski…
What are you working on now?
I'm writing a Tampa Bay pulp noir play called Dolphins, directing another play I wrote called Dungeon High, and soon I will be acting in Brendan JD Reilly's Bestiary.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Haha, yeahhh, not so suave at the promotion bit. Facebook, I suppose.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Finish your shit. Even if it sucks, even if you know you can do better, FINISH IT. A good piece will change and change and change. It will change you. But it doesn't have a chance if you can't finish draft one.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don't mix Fireball and Midori.
What are you reading now?
Cattle Cult Kill Kill by MP Johnson
What’s next for you as a writer?
What is your favorite book of all time?
Rant by Chuck Palahniuk has a special place in my heart.
