Author Spotlight: Lawrence Fisher

I am pleased to offer the following interview of one of the funniest people I have met in a long time....Lawrence Fisher.  His tongue-in-cheek humor resounds in his novel, Kill Me Now!

Kill Me Now!: A Middle Aged Man's Maneuvers Through the Frontline of the Dating Battlefield

1. What kind of books do you write and how many have you written so far? 

I write about the humor of dating. You get into a situation and instead of getting hurt you laugh it off. I have written four books in the trilogy. Oh wait., I am dreaming again.

2.  When is your next book being published?

Two months after it is written. The hardest part about being an author is that you have to write. I tried dictating to my computer so that she could type it up, but the stupid thing kept getting typos. Spock never had these problems when he spoke to his computer. I am doing research for the sequel. Are there any volunteers out there who want to be in the sequel?

3.  When did you start writing?

When I was three! I picked up a pencil and started writing hieroglyphics. I was so far advanced in my language skills that do this day no one has broke the hidden code behind my prose. I am sure that is how the Da Vinci code started out. Maybe in a hundred years some genius named Suineg will say “Hey, there is a pattern in this. Let us decipher this.”

4. What inspired this piece of work? 

A piece of work inspired me. Don't get me started discussing this piece of work. Aren't we supposed to be discussing my book?

5.  Why did you pick the genre that you currently write in, and are you currently considering writing in a different genre?  Why or why not?

I didn’t pick this genre. It selected me. My book is attuned to putting a smile to your face. If you don't smile, laugh or wince in every chapter, then you are welcome to hit me over the head with my book. Don't forget to bring pizza and wine when you come. If you a man, then bring a 42’ TV with you.

6.  Tell us about your creative writing process.

I have one? Please tell me what it is so that I may write it down as an algorithm. But like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, I will be stuck in a loop until someone fixes a light error. On the other hand if I try to be logical about my creative writing process I may lose my creativity. 
7.  Who is your favorite author, past and present, and why?

I’m not telling you. You’ll tell everyone else. They’ll buy their books and make theirs a best seller. Buy “Kill Me Now!” first. Then worry about everyone else. Is this a sales pitch.

8.      What motivates you to continue writing?
The smiles I get from people. Now, if any of them were gorgeous females, I would melt. I am asked what will happen if I ever find someone who I want to settle down with. I will continue writing, of course. Maybe a new series named Why did I not listen to Ed? His parents keep telling me never to get married. They still think that Ed is older than I am. Here is an excerpt from my book:

It seems that everyone enjoys my misery. What are you going to do when I finally find someone? I think that there is a hot babe just around the corner but one of you guys is stopping her from approaching me so that I can continue writing and sharing my misery with everyone. Prove me wrong. Ladies, show yourselves to me. I do not have a toll-free number for you, yet! Please, please do not let her be Sally, Satan's sister!

9.  How do you get ideas for your stories?

My dates provide them. Either my dates and experiences are weird or they give me weird stories of their own. Who knows if their stories are figments of their deranged imaginations or not.

10.  If you didn’t become an author, what do you think you would be doing now?

A computer programmer, a fitness trainer, research on propaganda. Wait a minute, I do those now anyway.

11.  Give us an insider look into your latest novel.

Read my blog. http;//

There is a nice story there from one of my dates:    

12.  If your novel made it to the big screen, what actors do you see playing the key characters?

Well, Adam Sandler can play me. As long as they pay me millions of dollars, he can play me.

13.  What’s the worst experience and best experience you ever had as a writer?

My worst experience is working with iUniverse, my publishing company.

14.  Where do you see yourself in five years with your writing and your life?

I am a realist, not a dreamer. If I was a dreamer I would have written a book. Oh wait a minute, I have. So I will dream. I will have three best sellers and a TV series. I will have been on book signing tours to the US. But for that everyone must tug and buy.

15.  Where can people find you and your books on the Internet?
