      • I would like my work to be recognized. I'd like more readers to share my work with and perhaps a movie deal or two. I am comfortable with what I have accomplished so far, but would like to be known in science fiction circles at least.

    • How do you think concepts such as Kindle, and e-books have changed the present or future of reading?

      • E-books have created a wonderful new avenue for writers. Simply put, e-books literally remove almost all the production cost from publishing! Books can be distributed and shared without the cost of so much as a piece of paper! This can also allow one to own a vast library of books without
        needing so much as a bookshelf!

        Now here's the downside. Without production costs, publishers, who once acted as "filters" for the written word, can be bypassed entirely. This means that anybody, talented or not, can publish any kind of book and make it available in a growing ocean of self-published work. This ultimately reduces the author to the role of beggar, hoping to find any readers of any kind to write reviews in order to stand out. This often leads to free books, which wind up downloaded to kindles and never read.

        In short, e-books are a new development in literature and we're still only beginning to understand where it will fit. I would recommend that writers offer their work in every possible format, including e-book and audio. Each has strengths that can be put to good use.

    • Have you ever incorporated something that happened to you in real life into your novels?

      • Always, but not in the obvious sense. I tend to write symbolically. Science fiction lends itself to that. I've described significant moments in my life as happenings on alien worlds, for example. Arguments and conflicts in the real world can be acted out as wars and plagues elsewhere.

        I've also looked to my memory for great settings and used conversations I've overheard for examples of great dialog. To some extent we all write about what we know.
