Another World’s Collider author interview: Author and artist Megan Moore

April 7th, 2012 by

So Megan, you’re an artist and a writer – what’s that like?

megimagebwMore than anything, it just means that I have a creative outlet to turn to when one avenue is blocked. Since I’ve been focusing on my writing lately, my art has had to take a back seat, but when I find myself unable to focus, or I just need a break from it, then I’ll spend a few hours on one of the paintings I have stashed away in my spare bedroom/office. The best part of that arrangement is that I spend 99% less time brooding than I would otherwise.

The two do tend to merge together at some point, though. Lately most of my art has been based around the novel I’m working on. It’s definitely helped me focus on the world that I’m trying to create, and it’s given me something concrete to look at when I’m trying to make creative decisions about my story.

Up next in the series of interviews with the authors of World’s Collider is James Moran!

James, you’ve pretty much done it all – you’ve written Severance, which was an instant cult classic, you’ve got two more films on the way, and you’ve written for Doctor Who and Torchwood. Do you have any unfulfilled dreams left?

Immortality. Telekinetic powers. The ability to transport myself. Basically I want to be Sylar. Doctor Who was a huge dream, so everything else is a bonus. Although I’d love to create my own TV series (something that’s in the works, slowly but surely), direct a film (also in the works), and get a creator-owned comic off the ground (not yet in the works, call me, etc). I’d really love to work in America too, so if any TV or movie producers would like to hire me, I’m available and not that expensive yet. I’d kill to write for Leverage. Seriously. John Rogers, if you’re reading this, in exchange for an episode, I will kill one person of your choice, no questions asked.

Interview with World’s Collider contributor, Jonathan Green.

March 3rd, 2012 by

For the 2% of readers who have never heard of you, tell us a little about yourself.

Hi, my name’s Jon and I am a freelance writer… Hang on, that sounds like an introduction at a meeting of the AA (Authors Anonymous). No, but seriously, I’m a writer of speculative fiction – everything from SF and Fantasy to Horror and Steampunk. I received my first commission in 1992 and finally went full-time in 2007.
I’m probably most well-known these days for my Pax Britannia novels (published by Abaddon Books) although those with long enough memories will remember my Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 novels, and maybe even my contributions to the Fighting Fantasy series of gamebooks.
I’ve been published in various languages and have written for a number of famous franchises, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars the Clone Wars and Doctor Who.
