when I'm writing stories there's always music and magic in the air

Q: Who are some writers that make you think about writing and have inspired you in some way? 
A: Tough question! I read all sorts of stuff, from history books to comics to folk tales to movie scripts. When I was a kid I loved the Three Investigators series, and also the stories by Alexandre Dumas (The Three Musketeers, The Man In The Iron Mask, etc). I do think their influences show in my stories. I’m also inspired by other creative formats like music and magic. I totally admire David Blaine the illusionist, because he can create profound performances out of the most basic items. And I also like listening to Metallica when I write, their beats and riffs influence the pacing and rhythm of my sentences.
Here’s an interview I recently did for the 98ft website, they run creative workshops and sometimes they use our stories too.
