I recently did an interview with the a Facebook group based off of the Granger Enchanted fanfiction website. The interview is below, and consists of get-to-know-me questions, and also some information regarding my stories, including my current story "The Ilvermorny Champion".Q: What is your usual writing genre?
Q: What was the reasoning behind writing your latest story? Were there any areas or issues you specifically felt needed to be addressed?
A: "The Ilvermorny Champion" came from the idea that I wanted to place the new J.K. Rowling Canon school Ilvermorny into the original 1994 Triwizard Tournament. But to make it more interesting I gave it a twist, and changed Harry Potter Canon. Harry and Lily (who was pregnant at the time) survived that Halloween night in 1981 due to proper defense planning by James and Lily if their house was invaded. I figured... what would happen after that? They went to America with Sirius and Remus, to hide from the continued threat on them -- whether it be Voldemort or Death Eaters. Lily had her daughter, Rose, and they stayed in America. Thirteen years later, when Harry became a contender for the Tournament, they returned.
As for issues, I wanted Ilvermorny to be modernized in the rule system, where Hogwarts is not. Hogwarts has a history of bullying. Ilvermorny has rules against it. Just one of many things. Harry being raised by Lily, Sirius and Remus made him much different than canon, and I wanted to address how such affected him and his personality.
Q: Did anything surprise you during its creation? What did you learn from it?
A: "The Ilvermorny Champion" Chapter 24 Spoilers!!!
Writing Chapter 24, I surprised myself by how emotional writing some really dark topics made me feel. I won't do too many spoilers, but that chapter made me cry while writing it. That rarely happens. I am also learning to write better when it comes to some ideas, then I have in the past. Each story is a new learning experience.
Q: How personal is the story to you, and do you think that made it harder or easier to write?
A: Not really personal at all. My story deals with lesbian and same-sex relationships, homophobia, homosexual insults, child abuse (not Harry), and that is just a small storyline. I've faced none of that, as I am a straight male. But writing it is a revelation, and also does make it difficult
Q:What do you do when you're not writing or doing other writing-related things? How do you relax or unwind?
A: Watch TV, Play Video Games, Hang out with friends and family.
Q: What do the people around you think of your writing?
A: Ugh. My brother once told me that writing fanfiction is bastardizing JK Rowling's work. But that was just to be harsh.He just doesn't understand that JK Rowling has accepted fan-fiction of her work. I even told him some authors do not.He has complimented on how well of a response I've gotten to my stories. My other family and friends only look at it as a hobby. When in fact, it is more -- read the answer to the final question for that explanation.
Q: How long have you been a writer? When did you begin to write? What prompted you to begin?
A: When I was a kid, I once wrote what would be classified as a one-shot Pokemon fan-fic. I wasn't even a fan of internet back then. Then after "Harry Potter and Order of the Phoenix" came out, I started writing my vision of Harry Potter book 6. Back then I had never heard the term "Fanfiction". I thought I was doing something unique! HA! Then I discovered the world of fanfiction, and published my first story on Chamber of Secrets form (Mugglenet affiliate) back in 2005/2006. I've been writing fanfiction ever since. Still to this day. Have recently surpassed 4 Million published words on Fanfiction.net.
Q: How do you interact with your audience in an age where access is both easier to achieve and harder to stand out in?
A: Uh... replying to reviews and Private messages on Fanfiction.net. And also Polls. Aside from that, none.
Q: What would you most like your readers to take away with them when they've finished the story?
A: For "The Ilvermorny Champion", uh... that I completed it! (half-serious, half-joke!) That I am one of the first authors to focus on Ilvemorny, and that I've presented a good story with making use of recent Canon information.
Q: What are you working on next?
A: Ooh... how about the other four or five WIPs on my FFN profile I have writer's block on and need to complete? LOL!
Q: What are your aims, ambitions and driving forces for your writing? What would you really like to achieve with it?
A: I want to be an Author. Right now I am an Aspiring Author. I love children's fantasy, children's horror, and Horror. Stephen King, JK Rowling, and R.L. Stine are my favorite authors, and my idols. I want to be able to publish something. The ONLY reason my penname is my real name is because of that. To put my name out there. No, I'm not working on a real book right now, but only because I have a dedicated fan-base in fanfiction.
