Heartfelt thanks once again to D. Thomas Minton as the second half of our conversation goes online! This time around, I answer questions about the craft of writing — namely, developing a narrative voice, the most common mistake beginning writers make, and whether I’m a plotter or a pantser. We also touch upon my love for talking animals and my prospects for taking a Russian rocket into space. Check it out! And when you’re done with the interview, check out Minton’s latest story, “Still Life Through Water Droplets” at Daily Science Fiction.
