Okay, A.A. Garrison. This is a little Q & A to get to know a little more about you and thicken up those stalker portfolios.
1 – Milk or dark chocolate?
Unsweetened Baker's Dark Chocolate, straight from the cute little papers it comes in. Good antioxidants in that stuff.
2 – What are your feelings in reference to LEGO’s?
They frustrated me as a child, but I've forgiven them.
3 – I know a lot of people ask what the favorites are in regard to horror movies, but my question to
you...what is your favorite drama comedy and why?
My favorite would be the one I've never seen. Movies mistreated me as a child, and, unlike LEGO's, I have yet to forgive this.
4 – What is the story/novel you are most proud of?
<plug> That would be my one published novel, The End of Jack Cruz, now available from Montag Press.
5 – What is the most interesting thing you have learned?
That it is entirely possible that our reality is a simulation.
6 – Do you do a lot of research for your writing?
I have a stark aversion to any research I cannot conduct within the sandbox of my imagination. So, to answer your question, no.
7 – Tell me about the novels you have written?
There is a conspiracy amongst the world's publishers not to publish them, except for Montag Press, who would be like the tragic patriot of publishers, risking punishment or death for daring to harbor my words, with agents of this conspiracy under every rock and behind every tree, wielding devilish editor-weapons made from the guts of old typewriters, a clever network of tubes shuttling them around the globe, surveillance performed by way of ingenious anti-gravity devices that can steal your heart, "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!"
8 –If you could not write, what would be your artistic outlet?
Playing the drums or the bass guitar.
9 – How do you like to tell a story? Character driven, location of importance, or something else entirely?
Typically, the third choice. Which, in my case, would be the imaginative component. Maybe it's just because I crave imaginative writing, but that's the measure of whether I consider my story successful.
10– What kind of music do you listen to when writing?
None. It's too distracting. Now, when I'm brainstorming ideas for writing ... any and all music.
11 – What is the most difficult thing you find about being a writer?
12 – Something about you that no one would believe.
I am adept at manipulating objects with my toes. Like, a simian level of proficiency. I would win contests for this, were there contests for this.
13 – Unicorns or dragons?
Dragons, because there's no such thing as unicorns.
13 – Okay, now promote yourself here, what else have you done that you would like people to know about?
Would you believe that, ignoring the agility of my toes, my novel is the crowning achievement of my life? I suppose I could promote my blog, synchroshock.blogspot.com, in which I've written about some interesting coincidences I have experienced.
