At the end of my author interviews I like to ask a few questions that are "just for fun" type questions. The following are the questions I asked Kevin along with his response to each:
In terms of what has influenced my writing, I would have to say science. Even though my college degree is in finance, I have always been intrigued by science. Readers will notice an element of science fiction in most, if not all, of my stories. I also model my simple writing style after one of my favorite authors, Brian Keene.
I hope to take my writing to a new level as I continue to develop as a writer. It would be nice to be a best-selling author one day. However, I would be satisfied writing a novel I can be proud of. To this day, I have only written short stories and mini-novels.
I certainly do. When this occurs, I try to take a break from writing and do something mundane. It allows me to clear my head and, in turn, my brain to wander. It has worked every time for me.
