What is your favorite bedtime drink?
Do you ever wish that you had an entirely uncreative job, like data entry or working in a factory?
Oh my, I plan to live a mentally healthy life. The repetition is what would kill me. I can understand those who after a day in a factory need to spend hours in a pub, to breath life and emotions.
Do you believe in a deity?
As a scientist I discovered that there is lots of complexity in the Universe, and more is yet to be discovered and understood. There seem to be a coordinated effort for things to work perfectly together. Even chaos is less chaotic than one could believe and has its laws and rules. If behind all this one wants to see a unique driving force, I’m not one to oppose that… without proof.
What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
There aren’t unfortunately. Writing is like a wound that doesn’t heal and a story oozes out of it from time to time. You have to escape reality to create a different one.
What is the single most powerful challenge when it comes to writing novel?
For me that would be when reaching the end, when you realize you can’t go on; everything has been said and done, and you need to part from that world. Maybe this is why at the moment I’m confronted with a trilogy. To have things going on…
What do you consider your biggest failure?
To have gone public too late. I’ve written stories and novellas since ever and never had the urge to even try to have others read. I think I’ve lost many interesting years.
