At Home with Fiction Author Chris DeBrie

Shakespeare Ashes LAuthor: Chris DeBrie
Title: Shakespeare Ashes
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Buy it at Amazon.com

Chris DeBrie is the author of three novels. As Is dealt with the difficulty of millennial life in humorous ways, and Selective Focus was what he calls ‘a comic book in novel form.’ With Shakespeare Ashes, he takes the reader into the unfiltered thoughts of four very different characters. DeBrie was raised in North Carolina, becoming an Eagle Scout and a solid third baseman. He earned a Bachelors in Communications from Appalachian State University. He then moved to Roanoke, Virginia by closing his eyes and stabbing a map of the United States. DeBrie approaches his craft like a hybrid between a coroner and an anthropologist–thoroughly, unflinching, and with empathy.

Find him on Facebook, or visit www.washyourhandsproductions.com

Where do you live?
Roanoke, Virginia.

Are you married or single?

Single and looking.

Do you have an outside job?
I usually do. Writing and other arts take a lot of time, and creating anything is a solitary act. So being around other people, even when I don’t have to, keeps me from getting lost in my imagination.

What is your favorite thing to do on your day off?
Sleep is always good.

What’s your most favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
Words like ‘breakfast’ are just labels to me. I have a random schedule. I eat when I’m hungry. My favorite food (this year, at least) is the minestrone soup from Carabba’s.

Do you have any pets?
I rescued a cat a few years ago. I named him after Panthero, from the old Thundercats cartoon, because he likes to play-fight and -bite me. A little fighter.

Pepsi or Coke?
I’ll take water or a strong cup of tea.

Favorite time of year?
Fall. I live near the Appalachian Trail, and the autumns in this area are partly what keep me here.

Favorite color?

It’s a tie between royal blue and charcoal gray.

Favorite book?
The Bible comes to mind first. This book is like golf–most people need a lifetime to master it.

What’s on your mousepad?
I have a wireless mouse, and I use my leg or a magazine for a pad.

How many times do you let the phone ring before you answer it?
Once, if I recognize the caller ID.

What’s the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
“Where did that dream come from?”

Chocolate or vanilla?
Vanilla ice cream, chocolate cake.

Do you like to drive too fast?
Not since the age of about 25. I got the speeding out of my system. Even if I’m late I take my time. That wouldn’t change unless I suddenly want a Lambo, and who knows?

If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be?
Crazy Horse.

What’s your favorite alcoholic drink?
Beer is the ole stand-by.

What is your zodiac sign?
Sagittarius, baby… astrology is just a template in my opinion, but that sign’s traits fit me to about 90%.

Is the glass half empty or half full?
If it’s a cold shot of the good stuff, and it was for me, I’d think the glass would be empty.

Please answer the following questions (at least 15):

1. Where do you live (city, country)?

I was born in Washington D.C, and currently live in Silicon Valley, in San Jose, CA.

2. What is the weather like?

Most of the time the weather is very enjoyable and sunny, here in San Jose, CA.

3. Have you lived there very long?

I have lived in California for over 10 years, and in San Jose for over 6 years.

4. Would you rather live somewhere else?

Well when I was biking on my chopper some 10 years ago, traveling cross country from Maryland to California, I heard their were beautiful women in New Port beach. And when I arrived, I called my friend in San Diego, and complained that the weather was cloudy and cold.  He asks, where are you?  And I told him I was in Newport Beach, Oregon.  (Just missed by 2,000 miles or so).  So really I like the sun and beach, so I have always had a fondness for Honolulu and PB in San Diego.

5. Are you married or single?

Currently I am single.

6. Do you have kids?

Nope.

7. Where were you born?

I was born in Children’s Hospital, in Washington D.C.

8. What was your childhood like?

I grew up in a fairly nice family, in Olney, MD, and have four brothers.  Mom was very loving, and Dad was more a military style.

9. What was it like growing up as a teen? What did you do for fun?

Growing up in Olney, MD was a great time and place.  A good mixture of people in suburban Washington D.C.   I was fairly active in sport and surfing in my youth.  Go Beach Boy!

10. Back to the present, what’s your favorite room in your house?

Hum, I guess my extra room, since I have a small guy and sauna there.

Cold water please.

19. Favorite book?

The Art Of Thought By Graham Walla, and learning in Film School at California State University – Long Beach, that there is really no such thing as creativity, there is just absorbing all the information available about a subject, then blending different ideas, to come up with a better service and product.  Since I know this, this is why I have spent so many years learning what the missing keys in real estate, really are.

A good glass of red wine.

Not sure, must be a cusp of something…

Absolutely half full at least, isn’t there 60% in there?

Standard

Randy Sue CoburnRandy Sue Coburn is a former newspaper reporter whose articles and essays have been published in numerous national magazines. She is the author of Owl Island and Remembering Jody, and her screenplays include Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle, the critically acclaimed Cannes Film Festival selection that received five Independent Spirit Award nominations, including Best Screenplay. Randy is also the author of the brand new women’s fiction novel, A Better View of Paradise. She lives in Seattle. You can visit Randy Sue Coburn’s website at www.randysuecoburn.com.

1. Where do you live (city, country)?
A: Seattle, Washington.
2. What is the weather like?
A: Usually cool, gray, and cloudy—highly conducive to writing, and the climate of my soul. Much of Owl Island is a love letter to Pacific Northwest weather. A Better View of Paradise 2Too many days of straight sunshine actually depress me. Of course, like most Pacific Northwesterners, I’m dreaming of Hawai`i come February. A big part of how A Better View of Paradise came to be set there.
3. Would you rather live somewhere else?
A: There is no other U.S. city where I would rather live, although I would dearly love to have a waterside cabin on the Puget Sound for regular writing retreats and fun times with friends and family. I miss the little floating shack that I used to escape to, but it was quite rustic and now I’m grown up enough to require electricity and indoor plumbing.
4. Do you have kids?
A: Much as I love children, I’ve never underestimated how much energy they take to raise, nor the fact that I’m a lousy juggler. On the days when I believe in past lives, I think that I must have had loads and loads of children, but everything I wrote got stuck in a drawer somewhere.
5. Where were you born?
A: Chicago, but I was raised in South Carolina.
6. What was your childhood like?
A: Very free and independent, with woods to explore and wild strawberries to pick and horses at a nearby barn to ride. Still, as soon as I could read, I spent a lot of time with my nose in a book.
7. What was it like growing up as a teen? What did you do for fun?
A: Apart from reading, I loved to dance—performing in Little Theatre musical productions and working as an assistant teacher at a neighborhood dancing school.
8. Back to the present, what’s your favorite room in your house?
A: My bedroom, where I often write. There’s an expansive view of Puget Sound, and all that water is inspiring for me when I work.
9. What’s your most favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
A: Dutch babies, also known as Hawaiian pancakes. They’re eggy and poufy and absolutely delicious with sour cream and preserves slathered on top.
10. Do you have any pets?
A: Yes—Binx, a smart, comical, affectionate floppy-eared terrier named for Binx Bolling, the narrator of a favorite Walker Percy novel, The Moviegoer. I was going to name him “Walker,” but thought that might get confusing at walk-time, and Percy just didn’t suit his personality. When I write in bed, his head is often on my feet, and if he has to go out, he raises a paw over the keyboard in a threatening gesture.
11. Do you know your neighbors?
A: My apartment is in a building with 74 others, just next-door to Seattle’s Pike Place Public Market, and I have the pleasure of knowing many neighbors. Quite a few are avid readers and very supportive when a new book of mine comes out.
12. Favorite time of year?
A: October. I think it might have something to do with the fact that I was conceived in October because it always seems such a romantic, sensual time of year to me.
13. What’s on your mousepad?
A: The Chinese symbol for “love.”
14. What’s the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
Whatever dreams I can remember. As Mike Nichols says, the great thing about the subconscious is that it has exactly your sense of humor.
15. What is your zodiac sign?
A: I am a classic crab—emotional (I cry at card tricks), home-loving, food-loving, tenacious, and picky enough to prefer the astrological designation of “Moon Child” over “Cancer.”

Ravelry: wickedsplitty

  1. Laced with MagicWhere do you live (city, country)? Central New Jersey, a few miles north of Princeton. Our area is a cross between farmland and horse country with a touch of suburban sprawl beginning to creep in.
  2. What is the weather like? Dark and warm and humid. I’m not a fan.
  3. Have you lived there very long? We moved here in late August 1986, back when some of the local roads were still unpaved.
  4. Would you rather live somewhere else? Absolutely not. Somewhere along the way I turned into a Jersey girl and I love it.
  5. Are you married or single? Very married. Extremely married. Practically married since birth.  I was 18, he was 19 and they said it wouldn’t last. (It’s been 40 years . . . )
  6. Do you have kids? No, we don’t.
  7. Where were you born? New York City, the borough of Queens, town of Elmhurst. Right across the street from the railroad and down the block from a dye company and a diaper factory.
  8. What was your childhood like? Despite the railroad and the dye company and the diaper factory, I’d say my childhood was close to idyllic. I was loved, encouraged, and cherished every step of the way. Both of my parents came from wildly dysfunctional backgrounds and how they managed to create an oasis of their own is a mystery to me, but they did. My husband often refers to my childhood as Disney World Queens and in many ways it was.
  9. What was it like growing up as a teen? What did you do for fun? I was thirteen when the Beatles first came to America in 1964, the perfect age for a full-blown case of Beatlemania. My friends and I were there at JFK Airport (I think it was still Idlewild then) when they landed and we were lucky enough to see them in concert later that summer. I spent most weekends roaming around the city with my friend Pat Durkin, hoping for random sightings of Beatles or Searchers or Rolling Stones. It was an innocent time, maybe a little bit crazy, but that was to be expected. President Kennedy’s assassination the previous November had marked the end of our childhood. Bad things happened to good people and they often happened without reason or warning. For a few happy months, John and Paul and George and Ringo helped us to forget.
  10. Back to the present, what’s your favorite room in your house? We live in a ten room house but we all seem to gravitate to the great room in the back.
  11. Do you have an outside job? I haven’t worked an outside job since 1982. I made the classic new author mistake of quitting my day job five minutes after signing my first contract. Fortunately for me it all worked out and I’m a full-time working writer who is grateful for my good fortune.
  12. What is your favorite thing to do on your day off? I love to drive down the Shore with my husband. I knit. He drives. We talk and laugh and plot  my books. It’s a great life!
  13. What’s your most favorite thing to eat for breakfast? Rye toast with peanut butter and sliced jalapenos.
  14. Do you have any pets? Three brilliant parrots of varying ages. Walter is a handsome Double Yellow Head Amazon of 35 years. Groucho is an equally handsome Amazon Yellow Nape of 22. Squirt is an adorable sociopathic Timneh African Grey of 15.
  15. Do you know your neighbors? Not very well. I’m a writer. I don’t get out much.
  16. Pepsi or Coke? Pepsi.
  17. Favorite time of year? Autumn. No contest.
  18. Favorite color? Sunshine yellow.
  19. Favorite book? Moving On by Larry McMurtry is tied with Family Happiness by Laurie Colwin.
  20. Does your car look better than your house? My car is definitely neater, that’s for sure.
  21. What’s on your mousepad? Dust. Lots of dust.
  22. How many times do you let the phone ring before you answer it? Infinity. I decided long ago that phones are there for my convenience and I choose whether or not to answer accordingly.
  23. What’s the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning? Maybe this will be the day . . .
  24. Chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla, preferably in the form of Crème Brulee.
  25. Do you like to drive too fast? I’ll take the Fifth on that one.
  26. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal? I used to sleep with a stuffed cocker spaniel who was named after Mickey Mantle. (And yes, I still have him.)
  27. If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be? John and Abigail Adams. They were so close I think of them as a single unit.
  28. What’s your favorite alcoholic drink? Now this is embarrassing. I’m not much of a drinker but I’ll admit to a weakness for pina coladas served from a giant pineapple complete with paper umbrellas and maraschino cherries.
  29. What is your zodiac sign? I’m a classic, stereotypical Cancer: home-loving, sensitive, thin-skinned, loyal, moody, emotional.
  30. If you could have any job that you wanted, what would it be? Oh, that’s easy. The one that I have: full-time writer. I’m living my dream.
  31. What’s under your bed? A stack of Interweave Knits, one pink and yellow bunny slipper, and a copy of last year’s Mary Higgins Clark.
  32. Is the glass half empty or half full? Full to overflowing!
