What inspires you to write and why? I just need to do it. I feel strange when I don’t write. It’s funny the whole caricature of writers being crazy drunks is not true to me, it is when I’m writing is when I’m most mentally healthy and when I’m not is when I get a little kooky.
What genre are you most comfortable writing? Satire, I love doing somebodies else’s voice; it is like acting for me and comes very natural.
What inspired you to write your first book? I wanted to do something fun, dangerous, literary, punk rock, and put in a book. I had all these crazy stories and satire ideas and my editor lead me into putting it all together into ‘The Passion of the Christoph’
Who or what influenced your writing once you began? My editor Jessica she kept telling to let my freak flag fly.
Who or what influenced your writing over the years? I am a total literary novel snob and really love the classics and wanted to write power novels that affect people but I just went a different route with humor.
What made you want to be a writer? It was the one thing besides playing live music that truly felt right in every way.
Did writing this book teach you anything and what was it? Yes, I really had a a way with comedy and humor. I was trying so hard to be a literary novelist and I have made peace that I am more of the class clown than the philosopher.
