Q: What is the hardest part of writing for you?

A: The hardest part of writing for me is trying to take the cold, abstract tenets of hard sci-fi and imbue them with life and vibrancy. I have always enjoyed the notions of Asimov and Bradbury, but as a queer writer, I felt alienated by their treatment of social issues. My goal is to write stories based around the old canon of science-based fiction but with lush imagery and moderns ideals and queer characters.
