Get to know John...



When did you start writing?

Not long after I learned the alphabet. But serious writing began in my
late teens.

When and what and where did you first get published?

I had a poem published in the local newspaper when I was 12.

Why do you write?

I have to do something with all this imagination.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy?

They’re genres in which imagination finds a good home.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story?

I’m not a believer in favorite authors or books. But if you asked me
after I just finished reading it, I would have said Middlemarch by
George Eliot.

What are you trying to say with your fiction?

Consciously, I’m not trying to say anything.  Subconsciously, it’s wherever
the lines or the characters take me.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?

On the whole, I would have rather been a folk singer.
