At the end of the summer, I did an interview with Kev from Kev's Great Indie Authors. He asked a lot of great questions that delve into my writing process and my characters.
Here's one of the exchanges:
Kev: Who or what influenced you to write [Tiger Trouble!]?
This book comes from every cartoon I watched, every manga I read, and every novel I’ve torn through.
When I was younger, I loved watching Dragonball Z, Spiderman, Dexter’s Laboratory, and Homestar Runner. You’ll find a little bit of all of those in the pages of my book.
I’ve always found a comfortable home in the pages of fantasy and sci-fi literature, too. It started with Dragonlance and now includes Lev Grossman’s The Magicians, Pat Rothfuss’s The Name of the Wind, and Rick Yancey’s The Fifth Wave.
My vote for the greatest novel of all time is Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, so whenever I need inspiration, I read a few pages and it never fails to get me writing again.
Last week I had a post about the importance of watching cartoons and the topic also surfaced in my interview with Kev.
