Interview with Stephen G. Levy
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Scaring the crap out of you!
What's the story behind your latest book?
The script was with Miramax for a while and they decided to pass since Japanese style films like The Ring were cornering the market. Then it went into a pilot for TV and was passed on since the leads were young. And finally I novelized it.
What are you working on next?
The sequel to The Night the Sky Fell. Another Old Soul emerges...someone you know!
Who are your favorite authors?
I always like Agatha Christie for plotting.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Thinking about writing.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Horton Hatches an Egg. It impacted my breakfasts...I eat eggs everyday.
How do you approach cover design?
I want to grab you emotionally.
What do you read for pleasure?
Describe your desk
Always messy...my cat eats the crumbs.
