What got you interested in writing?
I owed a lot of money to the mafia after betting wrong with the horses. My father always told me, if I needed to make some big money fast, wisest choice would be to start writing. He was 100% correct. Now I own two yachts. Not one. Two.
Tell us a little about your chosen genre.
I mainly write hardcore erotica. Stuff to jerk off to, you know, the real sexy stuff. As my father also used to say: if there’s a hole, there’s a way.
What are your happiest memories in your writing career?
One time I wrote this story about a guy who moved to New York to pursue his dream of being a writer and he suffered some minor money issues and failed to seduce a beautiful waitress. It was published to much acclaim by my peers and I received dozens of awards.
How do you handle success and failure?
I have never failed. When I succeed, which is often, I celebrate by driving down to the gas station and buying a 44oz Diet Coke fountain drink.
What makes you write when you’re exhausted and your fingers ache?
I learned a trick many years ago to keep myself motivated. Basically, I hired a man named Dan off of Craigslist to stand above me as I write, and every five seconds of inactivity on my part, he is instructed to punch me right in the balls.
What is your advice to young and new writers?
I recommend hiring Dan, or someone with similar skills.
Are you a traditionalist or a digital? (paper or eBook)
Whoa, whoa, whoa. What is this? Black Mirror?
Do you blog?
Do you self-publish?
Are you flirting with me?
