Q: Russ, What made you write Adventures of a Middle-Aged Man?
A: I enjoy writing short stories. Publishing a larger story as a book seemed like a nice challenge.
A: The initial comments from the reviewer. Even though there are many similarities to my family in this book, it is ultimately fictional. I had to remember not to take the comments and suggestions personally as the reviewer was trying to understand my writing and the concepts I was trying to convey to the reader.
A: The publisher helped with the QA/QC (quality assurance/quality control) on the formatting, grammar, and content in the book, as well as assisting with the illustrations that are found throughout.
A. I am currently working on the follow up book to the first. I am currently finishing up the final 2 chapters in this sequel.
