INTERVIEW 2 Tom Howard

INTERVIEW 2 Tom Howard
ER: If one of your books becomes a movie, who would you want cast into which roles?

Interestingly enough, I always cast my books with actors when I do their character sheets as the first step in my writing process.

It helps me keep their descriptions straight in my head. For "Sara's Station" I have Ellen Page and Josh Groban.

ER: What was the oddest experience you've had selling your books?

Back when I was writing Captain Uhura fanzine stories, I had a fan come up to me and try to convince me to read them.

ER: Do you belong to a writers group or any other support/hobby group? What, how long and why?

Definitely. I helped found the Central Arkansas Speculative Fiction Writers' Group here in Little Rock seven years ago. I'm also a moderator of the online critique group, Spinners, on Inked Voices. I'm a member of the online critique group, Speculative Fiction, also on Inked Voices.

I've sold almost seventy short stories in the last six years, mostly due to the great feedback I've received from these groups.

ER: Wow! Seventy short stories!!! Can you give us a list of some of those short stories?
