Interview on Story Hack!

I was interviewed on Monday at my palatial estate - well my house in my office/library by new friend  Bryce Beatty. I'm the first author of a new writer podcast he is doing called Story Hack.

Good interview.

I see from your author photo above that your stacks almost reach your light switches, too.

What was your teacher's reaction to your wolf story?

Regarding your comment about Billy the Kid, there are only about 4 killings that can definitely be attributed to him, IIRC. He took part in multiple gunfights in which I'm sure he probably shot some people, but there's no way to know who really fired the fatal shots. (Now I'm gonna have to go and look it up.)

I particularly enjoyed the discussion about how you write. It's similar to the way I write.

Thanks Keith, I appreciate that. I hoped it was entertaining and worthwhile. That was off the top of my head, it's been quite awhile since I read William Bonny's bio - I just know that a lot of killings were laid at Porters feet and if even 10% was true it's still more than most anyone else, so I find that fascinating.

My teacher and the other kids parents were shocked yet impressed with my story. It had more depth and carnage than I think the expected out of a second grader around 1980.
