Interview Yourself #19: Netflix and Bookcases

Hi, folks! Today, I’m continuing with a new, unique series of posts. This time, I’m using questions that I came up with myself. Uh-oh.

It’s going to be a lot of fun, and a great way for me to reveal a little bit more about myself, my writing and my habits. Are you ready? Good – let’s get started.

Where does the music fit in?

I’m still not sure if it does. But I do plan to release a book of short stories and lyrics in the coming years.


Why do your characters keep dying?

I don’t know! I guess you’d better ask them.


Which is your favourite poem to perform?

I suppose it would be Anonymous’ White Mask of Freedom, just because it’s long. Although some of my newer ones, like Good God and From the Mouth of a Cat, are my favourites at the moment.


How do you memorise your poems?

I jog on the spot in my house, repeating them over and over again until I nail them down. It’s weird, but it works.


What’s currently on your mind?

I’ve been having problems with malware on my website. I think it’s all fixed, but it’s still pretty annoying.

What are you watching on Netflix?

I’m currently working through Forensic Files. Every now and then I learn something that I can use in one of my books.


What are you going to do when you run out of space for bookcases?

Move into a bigger house.


Where’s your favourite bookish place to go?

Probably The Book Farm in Astley, near the town I grew up in. So many books! And the prices are good, too.


Why don’t you read ebooks?

I like to keep my books up on display after I read them. And I read enough text on a screen during my day job and when editing my own work.


What number am I thinking of?

You’re me, so you’re thinking of the number 23.
