Q&A with author Axel Cruise
RG: How did you get into writing? Is it that classic story of long-time reader who decides to pick up a pen?
RG: Your parents must have loved that.
RG: I think we’ve all been on the receiving end of that one. So did you have to sneak in your TV time?
RG: Oooh, good answer. That must’ve driven them crazy!
RG: (Nodding whilst holding a copy of Hearing Voices) Seems you were.
RG: Any TV shows in particular?
AC: Not really. I watched pretty much everything. Anime, sit-coms, superheroes—I loved them all. Even stuff I was a little too young to understand. Like for example Seinfeld or Married with Children, when I was only five or six.
RG: OK, so it was through copious watching that you subconsciously picked up the fundamentals of story production?
RG: I think Ben Stiller had a similar theory for himself. He wasn’t just watching TV, he was studying it. Were movies a big thing for you?
RG: OK, let’s turn back to the written word. You’re an avid reader, so when did your love of books take flame?
RG: 16? That’s late.
RG: Which biographies?
RG: What about fiction? When did that start?
RG: Which one?
RG: Who are your favorite authors?
RG: Are there any self-published authors you particularly look up to?
