How do you think people perceive writers?
The Internet has caused a strange phenomenon: everybody think he/she is a writer! The respect for research and creativity has been bludgeoned by the blogosphere (no insult intended). For example, most of my students in college are great at getting information, but they are lousy at using it and applying it in effective and thought-provoking ways. They are not being taught to think critically and to analyze sources for credibility and/or real world application.
What’s your next project?
I’m working on The Steam City Pirates, mystery #4 in the Pat O’Malley Historical Steampunk Mysteries. I even have some “old salt submariners” who are advising me on the technical aspects of steam-powered submarines. This is an advantage of being a “Navy brat” and son to a WWII submariner and Pearl Harbor Survivor.
