The Artiste: You don’t find it distracting listening to music while you write?
Me: Yeah well, when I’m in The Groove it’s just background noise. But if I get stuck on a sentence, or a plot point or an asterisk, I tune in. It’s less disruptive than going for a cup of coffee or, you know . . . a swim or something.
The Artiste: Yeah, yeah! What sort of stuff do you listen to?
Me: Heavy metal, mainly: Metallica, Poison- I recently discovered Rammstein- WAAH! WOAH-
The Artiste: Do you find what you listen to influences your writing?
Me: Oh yes, definitely.
The Artiste: Interesting. What sort of books do you write?
Me: Romance. Mainly.
