Author interview: Paul B. Spence

Yes, it’s true: I still haven’t written my A-to-Z post for today. Lucy is being difficult…

But I have something to share with you that you’ll definitely want to read: Today on her blog, Ch’kara SilverWolf has an interview with science fiction author Paul B. Spence.  Read it to find out (among other things) how Paul came up with the title for The Madness Engine, how much of the story is realistic, and what his favorite scene is.

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

    Loved it. Now was that so hard? (The interview-y stuff.)

    • You have NO IDEA. I just happened to catch him in a relatively non-stressed moment between bouts of “Arghh — my research prospectus!” and “Arghh — new Warhammer 40K models!” and “Arghh — the novel is finished, and now I have post-project ennui!” However, he had asked me a couple of days before if I had any ideas for book publicity, and I pointed out to him that I’d been secretly making plans in the background, arranging for author interviews and such… 🙂
