Interview for Next Big Thing

Ten Interview Questions for the Next Big Thing:


What is your working title of your book?


The Phantom Museum


Where did the idea come from for the book?


Alien possession – like most of my ideas.


What genre does your book fall under?


Poetry, particularly prose poetry.


One sentence synopsis of your book.


 “History is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.”


Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?


Neither. I’ll be submitting the manuscript myself to chapbook publishers and, if desperate enough, chapbook contests.


How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?


I’m still adding to the manuscript – and still revising parts I thought for a while might be done.


What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?


Anything I answer is going to sound presumptuous – or insane. I do admire the prose poetry of Robert Bly, Zbig Herbert, and Charles Simic.


Who or what inspired you to write this book?


Nothing specific. Writing is just something I do. Like breathing.


What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?


It’s dark, but full of laughs.
