AUTHOR Q &A
What inspired you to write Angry Movie Guy? I've always been intrigued by boisterous characters in life like, Simon Cowell from American Idol or Howard Stern, from the Howard Stern Show. Do you have a specific writing style? I often think the heroine of my story is holding a silver-plated heart-shaped key ring, and the hero is holding the key therefore, it is only matter of time before the hero wins the heroin's heart. Of course, the hero must overcome numerous obstacles before this happens. How did you come up with the title? Choosing a title for the book was challenging. I changed it numerous times before settling on Angry Movie Guy. It was a title that I could see on the big screen, and as a screenwriter this was very important to me. How much of the book is realistic? I make reference to actors and directors, but all the reviews in the book are fictional and do not reflect my personal view point. Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? I would say the message is not to get caught up in impressing those around you and forget who you really are.
