  • Reading and writing on the sly as a kid.
  • Why it took him over 5 years to finish reading Stephen King’s IT
  • How he can make puzzles out of short form works.
  • The ways time is strange when you’re involved in the writing world.
  • The straight up truth about publishing being a pain the ass, and why he never thinks about the publishing part
  • I flipped the standard gender roles question to find out how he balances work and family with a creative existence
  • Why consuming creative works is a form of writing.
  • How his Charlotte Street residency shaped his writing over the last year.
