If someone was just hearing about you for the first time what 1 thing would you want them to know?
That I have a very odd sense of humor.
Did you always want to be a writer?
Yes. I wrote my first short story (which I wish I still had) in first grade. Words have always fascinated me. I believe that reading is the most important skill one can have. I did dally with drawing for a while and I’m still a compulsive doodler, but my writing got way better than drawing so it fell by the wayside.
What has been the biggest adventure of your life?
A Tie. Joining the US Coast Guard and living in Alaska for two years, going back to Alaska in 2013 and having the greatest vacation of my life.
If zombie apocalypse were to happen tomorrow would you be prepared?
Honestly, half prepared. I do own an SVU and I have some survival gear. I also keep an eye on the news for odd things. The way the world is today forewarned is forearmed!
What 3 things do you feel everyone should have to be ready for a survival situation?
- A bug out bag. 2. Several good knives. Not the kitchen kind, the outdoors kind. You can always use a knife to make another weapon. 3. Some kind of water purification device. Dehydration will kill you faster than hunger!
Who would you want with you if civilized society fell apart?
My wife and my dog.
What 2 books would be in your bug out bag, knowing you would have to read them over and over?
The Lord of the Rings and How Things Work.
If we were thrown into the dark ages what would you miss most?
What is the most surprising fact about you?
That my hard exterior hides a person who likes to talk to (and not down to) children. I find their insights fascinating.
