1. Loyal Stalkers is a book that’s a little different from other collections I’ve read. Why did you decide to go with interconnected short stories? Or was that accidental?
With short story collections readers connect with some stories more than others. I felt by having links, even if there are one or two stories a reader may not relate to as much, because they add to the overall story arch, their attention will not be lost. That is my hope at least. Also, I love movies such as Pulp Fiction and Short Cuts where characters pop in and out of each other’s stories.
