Author Interview – Christoph Paul

Who or what influenced your writing over the years? I am a total literary novel snob and really love the classics and wanted to write power novels that affect people but I just went a different route with humor.

What made you want to be a writer? It was the one thing besides playing live music that truly felt right in every way.

Did writing this book teach you anything and what was it? Yes, I really had a a way with comedy and humor. I was trying so hard to be a literary novelist and I have made peace that I am more of the class clown than the philosopher.

Do you intend to make writing a career? Absolutely, I am in this for the long haul. I love writing and it look at it as a labor of love.

What are your goals as a writer? To entertain and/or enlighten the reader and grow a fan base who appreciate my brand of writing.

What books have most influenced your life? “Little Children” taught me you can be funny and write about screwed up things and still make us learn about the human condition

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? A ton, I just finished a collection of poetry called ‘Buy This Poetry Book So I Can Afford Therapy’ which should be out this summer and I am finishing the rough draft of my first YA book.

Are you reading any interesting books at the moment?

Yes ‘Horns’ by Joe Hill it is really devilishly fun.

Are there any new authors that have sparked your interest and why? Jason Najum is a new indie writer I like for his voice and showing that indie can be a way for new interesting voices to be heard.
