YO HO HO-MORE PIRATEY INTERVIEWS FROM PULP EMPIRE!
In middle school, though my writing back then would better serve as toilet paper. By high school, I only allowed my close friends to read anything and they encouraged me to go beyond that.
First and foremost, David Morrell. He was the first author I really, really started looking forward to the next book to come out. Lately, Brent Weeks has caught my attention. Not only is he a great guy, he tells a great story. Both make reading a joy.
Brotherhood of the Rose by David Morrell. The characters drew me back. It’s the only book I’ve ever read twice.
I’ve written pulp, but it’s not the only genre I write, so I don’t consider myself exclusively ‘pulp’. I have a couple of alter egos out there writing anything from young adult and beyond. For me, it’s not about writing in one genre. It’s about taking it and writing a story well. I haven’t found a genre I didn’t like yet.
Gritty. It’s got that character you sometimes love to hate, and perhaps to some level, it’s got a bit of cliche cheese, but in a good way. A femme fatale doesn’t hurt either.
What made you decide to submit a story for the Pirates & Swashbucklers anthology?
I belong to a private writer’s site called Scribophile. A couple of the ladies and I have a group there and when a good anthology waggles its bum in our direction, we announce it. I’ve always liked the arrogance of a swashbuckler and how, no matter what, they get out of trouble and snag the girl in one swoop.
