Today’s guest is Patrick Freivald, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the 2014 World Horror Convention and then again at the 2014 Bram Stoker Award Ceremony. He’s helped me become a better writer and today, he’ll challenge my seven deadly questions.
Hi Patrick and welcome.
Thanks! Happy to be here!
1) Patrick, please tell us a little bit about you.
I’m an author, teacher (physics, robotics, American Sign Language), robotics coach, and beekeeper. I started writing with intent to get published eight years ago, and after three or four years hammering on my first novel late last decade, I’ve now submitted my fifth to my publisher, and have several short stories in a variety of anthologies. I live in the middle of 6600 acres of state forest with far too many pets, and grow most of my own food, including unreasonable amounts of hot peppers.
My writing tends toward the off-center: science fiction, fantasy, horror. A lot of “what if” goes into my scrawlings.
