Author Interview: Sean Williams

Have you heard of YALLFEST?  If you have not, than I really encourage you to pop over to their site to learn more about this AMAZING event happening on Saturday, November 9 in Charleston, SC. I only wish I lived closer so I could attend but instead, I am helping to spread the word about it!

Today's featured author is Sean Williams. Having written almost forty books now, fans of science fiction or fantasy will find something within his book list that would appeal. Be sure to visit his website or check out the author page on GoodReads for his complete listing. With his newest title coming out on November 5, Twinmaker is sure to be on my reading list later this fall. 

Q1: What one thing do you need to have when you write?

The right music. And chocolate as a reward when I finish.

Q2: Describe your book in 5 words

Jump meets Uglies. But different.

Q3: What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?

The first line is often the hardest to write, but I like a good challenge. The line I like writing the least is the last because it means I have a whole load of rewriting ahead of me.

Q4: Best writing tip you ever received?

Give up. If you can do that, you’ll be happier and probably better off as a result. If you can’t, then you know writing is exactly the right thing for you!

Q5: Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.

1) I live in Adelaide, South Australia, a place that’s home to about a million other people but somehow feels like a small town, which is why I love it.
2) I still think music from the 1980s is cool.
3) My stepson has situs invertus, which means his heart is on the wrong side of his body. That’s not really about me, but it is pretty random.4) I’m a huge fan of Doctor Who.
5) I’m minding a pair of green tree frogs, Skipper and Jumpy, for a young friend while she’s overseas with her family. You can see pictures of them on my Facebook page.

Q6: Where's your favorite place to write?

In my study, a lovely upstairs nook containing all my favorite book-related things, but I’ve trained myself to write anywhere as long as I have my headphones and some music. I quite like writing in hotels, probably because someone else does all the household chores.

Q7: What are you working on now?

Crashland, the sequel to Twinmaker.
