BH: I’m curious about how having kids shapes your writing process.
BT: I’m really drawn to writer-dad dudes, writer-mom chicks, too, but I do have a thing for dads who make art. Again, my dad was a painter, a tortured artist in ways, so I’m really drawn to people who are trying to do everything. And I’m biased, which is something I always say when I’m blogging and writing reviews of people’s books. Don’t treat anything I say as an honest, intellectual critique; I don’t do that. I’m a total fanboy. So, if you’re a dad writer, or I’m attracted to you or what your doing, that’s going to bias what I say about your book, or your movie, or whatever. It’s just without question. But there are certain things I really react to, so if you tell me you’ve got a day job and you’re writing at two in the morning? Man, I mean, I’m in love you with. That’s someone I want to spend time with.
