JQM PRESENTS A BLOG POST INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR RG Long
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:
I’m a casual nerd who loves Final Fantasy video games and Warhammer. I grew up on those things and got REALLY into the stories that came along with those two hobbies. I’ve got three amazing daughters who I play video games and Dungeons and Dragons with. When I’m not writing, I love a good work out and exploring new places!
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO WRITE?
The stories that have made me feel all the feelings make me want to give that experience to other people!
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS? WHY?
I’ve got to shout out to Daniel Arenson. He was the first indie I read and his MOTH series is absolutely epic. He inspired me to publish my stories!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS? WHY?
Redwall sticks out as the first “nerdy fantasy” book I ever read. I love the way Brian Jaques tells a story and his characters are wonderful to journey alongside!
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE LITERARY CHARACTERS? WHY?
Sam and Boromir from LOTR
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR FELLOW AUTHORS AND/OR ASPIRING AUTHORS?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Write and get better! The rest will come.
IMAGINE ONE OF YOUR BOOKS IS ABOUT TO BECOME A FILM OR TV SHOW. WHO IS YOUR “DREAM CAST?” AND WHO DO YOU ASK TO CREATE THE SOUNDTRACK?
I’m absolutely horrible at these types of questions! I would just be honored they thought to option my stuff!
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH POTENTIAL READERS?
If you enjoy long series with lots of action and characters, my books are where you’ll find them!
WHERE CAN WE GO TO LEARN MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR LITERARY WORKS?
