Get to know Timothy Mudie:


Birthdate? 6/12/1983


When did you start writing?

I first started writing when I was ten years old.


When and what and where did you first get published?

Not counting school literary magazines, my first paid published work was a story called "Machines, Posthumans, and the Rest of Us," which appeared in the March 2008 issue of the unpronounceable magazine,The Fifth Di...


Why do you write?

Quite simply, I love stories, and I love telling the stories than I think up. I've been an avid reader ever since I learned how to read, so I think it was only a matter of time before my brain started coming up with ideas of its own.


Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy?

For one thing, I simply find it more fun. For another, I appreciate how SFF can be used as a lens to examine any number of real-world issues.


Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story?

I'm afraid I can't answer that question because there are just too many! I'm a big fan of Haruki Murakami, China Mieville, Jeff Vandermeer, and plenty of other writers. As far as short fiction, I'll read pretty much anything written by A. Merc Rustad, Sofia Samatar, Rich Larson, Sam J. Miller... the list goes on. But my favorite book, ever since I first read it at ten years old, remains Jurassic Park.


What are you trying to say with your fiction?

How successful I am at saying anything with my fiction is up for debate, but as much as I want my fiction to say anything, it's that we're all humans and all floundering in this hard world together, and the world is a better place when we understand that.


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

He did the best he could.


Do you blog?

Nope!
