What made you want to write for The Hudsucker? The down-to-earth articles really caught my interest.
What is your favorite article on the site and why? I am actually a big fan of the “He Said, She Said” articles. The “Third Wheel” one from April is one of my favorite conversations. I know so many people who have, are, or hate going through this (I’ve been on both sides). These articles really connect the reader to the writer in the most personal way possible.
Who is your favorite author on the site and why? Kathleen Horgan. Another bias pick but she is the one who turned me on to The Hudsucker.
What is one of your own favorite articles on the site and why? I haven’t written it yet, but I am really looking forward to my next article! I may have only published one so far, but I like the “Man of Steel” series. It includes my first article, “Plan of Steel”, Tania’s upcoming article – the review of Man of Steel, and then my next article that will compare Man of Steel to Iron Man. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!
Where do you see The Hudsucker in 5 years? I think The Hudsucker will be a very entertaining and informative blog, maybe even with an app.
What do you think of your fellow peers here at The Hudsucker? I’m still getting to know them all, but so far no one has called me a nerd.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Probably with kids, hopefully half-way to being retired.
What words of advice would you give writers? Sometimes you need breaks from writing, but never take breaks from dreaming.
Who do you look up to? People who take risk for the ones they love.
What is one of your favorite life lessons? Do onto others…
“I’m always angry”
– Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk in The Avengers
