Kristian, thank you for the nomination! It is appreciated because I can put on my thinking cap to answer the provocative questions and come up with some of my own for my nominees. Kristian’s blog is always interesting, especially when it comes to writing fiction with a dark twist. Check his blog out sometime and see what I mean.

Questions from Kristian (good questions, Kristian!) and my answers:
Name something you like to see in a book, that makes you want to read further.
Something a little out there, such as an extreme or unusual occurrence or upcoming event, where there’s a suggestion that an explanation will be revealed. I also like to see it jumping around, with multiple stories being told, or flashbacks that explain, where at some point they converge. A straight up linear story has to be really good with other elements to hold my attention.
What would make you want to stop reading a book?
Print so small I can’t read it. An unexceptional linear story. A point of view that is toxic or triggering.
If they produced the story of your life, what genre would it be?
Transgressive fiction with liberal splashes of horror.
If you could have a plane ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Barcelona, Spain. Must.See.Gaudi.
What advice would you like to give to your ten-year-old self?
Don’t believe all the bs the haters tell you that try to break your spirit. You’re a beautiful soul and you deserve a chance to reach your potential. You need to find a new family, one where they care to understand how you think and to support you in reaching your potential.
