"Ask Me" Poll Q&A: Pt. 2

This is the second and last part of the questions I'm answering for the "Ask Me" Poll I issued last week.  The questions were so awesome, you guys!

Q: What is your writing process?
A: To be honest, I don't really have one.  If it's inspiration you're inquiring about, I find it everywhere: on my job, with my friends, and even just in random observations of the world around me.  Once I have an idea, I play it out, almost like a movie, in my head.  If it's something I'd watch, I dedicate myself to writing it.

Q: Most writers have a particular genre or forte.  What's yours?
A: I did a lot of research for this question haha, to determine which genre of fiction my work can be best categorized by.  And the answer is none.  The Grim is my first novel, but my strength is short story fiction.  I have written horror, romance, war, and prison stories so it's difficult to narrow my body of work to one genre.  I don't like to limit myself; me and boundaries don't quite get along :-)

Q: If your book becomes a movie, would you star in it?
A: Interesting question!  If you watched the "Ask Me" Poll blog video, you can tell I'm not very comfortable on camera.  So I probably wouldn't act in a movie of my novel.  But I have thought about the possibility of my book becoming a movie, and I've got some great actors I'd love to solicit for the roles!

Q: Why not pursue both your loves: writing and singing?
A: I can't (or won't) do both because launching yourself as an independent artist in any industry is a lot of hard work and dedication.  A lot of the initial work has to be funded yourself, unless you're one of the lucky people who are able to find sponsors early.  Besides, I'm a much stronger writer than singer.

Thank you to everyone fan who sent in questions.  I appreciate your encouragement and support!  Keep reading and I'll keep entertaining.  Before you know it, May 1, 2012 will be here!
