18 Dec Interview on Brayton’s Briefs
Brayton and I travel to Tasmania to drink wine, swim with a platypus, and discuss my deep dark secret.
Excerpt from the Interview
Who are you and what makes you the most fascinating person in your city?
I have quite the interesting life here in San Diego. Besides being a writer, I own a marketing company, am a 41–year-old BodyCombat instructor, I regularly attend MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) meetings and UFO conferences, and spend my spare time studying ancient Sumerian cuneiform tablets hoping to uncover the true origins of the human race. I am also obsessed with insects and small animals around my property and can often be found posting pictures of them.
What interested you to become a writer rather than something else such as rock star?
Are you kidding? I would totally give this all up to become a rock star. The problem is, I am tone deaf, so it never worked out in reality. But now that they have auto-tune, I could give it another go. I can still be a rock star at 41, right?
If I were stranded on a deserted island or suffering from a four hour layover at the airport, why would your book(s) be great company?
If you were on a deserted island, you could paint a face on my book with your blood and name it Wilson.
The airport is different. You might get thrown in TSA jail if you cut your hand and go all Castaway in the terminal and start talking to my book. So in that case, it would provide some pure escapist fun. It is weird, funny, and educational. I would just be careful when you get to the steamy sex scenes. I wouldn’t want anyone staring at you funny because you’re fanning yourself in the fully air-conditioned terminal.
