Get to know Christopher...

Birthdate? 22 April, 1977

When did you start writing? Sometime around 1998 or 1999. One day I decided to sit down and write a novel for the fun of it. I've never quite been able to stop since.

When and what and where did you first get published? In 2001 with a short story in "It's Fate," a UK supernatural/woman's magazine.

Why do you write? To entertain, to communicate, to answer a need in myself, and perhaps, hopefully to address needs in others.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? Science fiction and fantasy are both genres of the imagination. They are backgrounds against which I can tell the sort of stories I like to read.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? It's an even draw between Bradbury, le Guin and more recently perhaps Michael Chabon. A favourite story, I can't decide on. There are so many good ones.

What are you trying to say with your fiction? I find that readers tend to be better at understanding what a story is meant to say than the writer ever is (and stories never do have to say the same thing twice). Readers are clever, they have a knack for knowing what needs to be understood from a story.

Do you blog? Where? Yes, occasionally. I have a site at www.somniloquist.org that has some writing, thoughts and notes.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? Christopher Johnstone. 1977-
