Christopher Woods

Talisman, poem, June 1, 2008

Birthdate? 9/19/1950

When did you start writing? When I was in high school.

When and what and where did you first get published? A first poem publication was in a Texas journal, The Pawn Review, in the mid-Seventies.

Why do you write? A basic need to express in words, on paper, all the things that would be lost otherwise.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? I write both realistic and non-realistic works. The latter is probably influenced by the magic realists.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? I do not have a favorite writer or story, sorry.

What are you trying to say with your fiction? I’ll let the characters decide about that.

Do you blog? Where? No.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? I would not write my own epitaph.

Christopher Woods is the author of a prose collection Under a Riverbed Sky.
