We let the Narrator of the book handle this interview with Vamazz the Vamazing. Let's see what silliness ensued!

For every book we release, we'll feature an interview with one of its major characters. This person may or may not be the main character; in the case of Skate the Thief, it is not. We interviewed Haman Vaerion: a thief, a wizard, and a man of secrets. Let's see what tidbits we were able to pry out of him.

As a teenager, I lived about two-and-a-half hours south of my grandmother. I’d drive up about every two weeks to stay the weekend, and whenever I did, I visited Borders. (At that time, my town had only a Barnes and Noble.) I almost always bought a book when I went. Sometimes, I bought one I knew I wanted; other times, I bought one that turned out bad—or mediocre. There is only one book I remember turning out fabulous.
The first question I ask a writer I’m working with is “Who are your writing inspirations?" The second is "Whose book(s) are you reading now?”
I get inspiration from many different authors and always have a stack of at least three books I’m currently reading. I have inspirations for style, content, character development, action scenes, suspense building . . . and I try to read from pretty much every genre and topic out there. I’m a writer, so I need to immerse myself in writing. And I expect this from other writers.
