3Q’s – Chris Sorensen makes messy nightmares!

3Q2

Today’s guest is one who writes nightmares while also narrating them. Chris Sorensen is one of the nicest guys out there and I’m so happy to have him answer the 3Q’s!!

Welcome, Chris!

Steve: What does your writing time look like? Do you try to write at the same time each day? Do you have a word count you attempt to hit?


CS: Thanks for asking, Steve! To be honest, my writing schedule is as scattered as the rest of my life (at least currently). We’re in the midst of a 6-month house renovation that’s moving into its third year, so I tend to find writing time where I can. When I have more control over my time, I like to start work around 7 or 8 pm and work until the wee hours. My best work/ideas come when the house is still, the sky is dark, and my preferred soundtrack of the moment is on loop. I don’t find word counts helpful, but I LOVE a good deadline. I’m working on a play right now that’s already been cast and goes into production in November. I find that particular kind of terror perfect for getting the words flowing.

Steve: If you started a series and for some reason had to have another author finish it, who would you choose?


CS: Hmm, that’s a tough one. I could rattle off some authors whose work I’m jazzed about, but to have one of them take over a series? Laurel Hightower is writing some terrific stuff, stories, and characters that I really relate to, but I wouldn’t want to burden her with my scribblings. She has more than enough to say on her own. I guess I’d have to go with Nick Sullivan. I’ve known him for years, first as an actor and then as a fellow indie author and audiobook narrator. We laugh at the same things, are both sticklers for structure, and he tends to finish what he starts. I’d be happy with either of them writing Barnyard Cannibals, Books 7, 8 & 9.

Steve: Tell me about your newest release (novel/story/poem/novella) and why someone should read it!

CS: If anyone happens to be in Colorado this holiday season, they can check out my newest play, The Wizard of Oz, Colorado. It’s a wild west retelling of the classic story by L. Frank Baum. Thin Air Theatre Company is mounting it at the historic Butte Theater in Cripple Creek. Beyond that, I have 5 novels and 3 novellas in various states of construction.

(** My apologies to Chris, he’d sent a photo along with his upcoming releases but my computer decided to eat it and completely pixelate it and distort it for some reason!** )

Steve: Bonus Question! If they made a movie about your life, what actor or actress would you suggest they get to play you?

CS: As much as I’d like to go with Bill Hader, I gotta choose Michael Cera.
