TitleTrakk interview

Kevin Lucia at TitleTrakk asked me some questions about Auralia’s Colors. Like these:

  • I see from your bio that you wrote your first fantasy story at the age of seven. Would you say then that having your first novel published is the culmination of a life long dream?
  • Would you call yourself more of a movie fan, or movie critic?
  • How is writing nonfiction different from writing fiction?
  • How did Auralia’s Colors find its genesis? I don’t suppose that was the story you wrote at age seven?
  • Do you feel it’s important for Christians today to constantly be evaluating and judging media at large?
  • Auralia’s Colors is a work of fantasy; how does this genre, more than others, lend itself to the creative process?
  • Would you consider any authors, contemporaries or otherwise, as inspirations?
  • Christian entertainment has changed much in the last few years; especially in the areas of music, fiction, and movies. What do you see in the future for Christian entertainment?
  • How do you feel about Amazon.com’s new wireless reading device? How do you feel about someone potentially downloading Auralia’s Colors on Kindle?
  • Who reads your work, if anyone, before a publisher and editor does?
  • If there was any advice you’d like to give to aspiring writers, what would it be?

TitleTrakk’s review of Auralia’s Colors was published a while back.

He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House.

He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
