    I enjoy listening to classical music and heavy metal. I play basketball and try to go diving at least once a year. I don''t really have hobbies in the traditional sense... I engage in too many activities already through the actions of my characters.

    Growing up, I never gave a thought to being a writer. All I ever wanted to be was a traveler and explorer. Science-fiction allowed me to go places that were otherwise inaccessible, which is why I started reading it. I was going to be a lawyer, but I got saved.

    I have a bad tendency to get rapidly bored with my own material, so rewriting is hard for me. I mean, I already know the story and would rather read something new.

    I hear entire symphonies, oratorios, in my head, but I can''t write a note.
