Author Interview – Daniel Black

What do you do to unwind and relax? I read, or play video games, or watch TV and play with my cats, but most of all… I write.

When you wish to end your career, stop writing, and look back on your life, what thoughts would you like to have? Well, in the words of the immortal Robert Jordan, god rest his soul, “I intend to keep writing until they nail shut my coffin.”

What is your favorite food? Lefse, it is a Scandinavian dish made from potatoes, butter, and in the case of our family, sugar. It is a desert generally reserved for holidays, and it is delicious.

What is your favorite place in the world? I am not the outdoorsy type, so my favorite place in the whole world would have to be my office, in my home. I sit here and my cats keep me company, curling up on my feet, or watching as the words appear on the screen. Sometimes my wife joins me in here and we laugh at the cats antics, or we play games together… Yes, of all the places in the world I could say I love; my office is number one among them. Not because it is my office, but because of what the people who come in here bring with them, fun, love, and good company.

Did writing this book teach you anything, and what was it? I should hope so, and a great many things. It would be a sad sad experience that taught you nothing. Most of all the story tough me that when the writing feels right, you experience what your character experiences, you feel their torment, tears flow down your cheeks as your fingers click on the keyboard, and you laugh at their jokes. Characters in a novel come from you, and they are a part of you, but they are also individuals with their own wants and dreams, and lives, and it hurts when things go badly for them.

Do you intend to make writing your career? Absolutely; in fact, it already is. I am currently a full time author, thanks to my wife and her support and love for me and my work.
