Acceptance speech at Writers of the Future (starts at 00:56), including a reenaction of my backfired attempt to impersonate Ahnuld Schwarzenegger.
One group I meant to thank, but forgot in the adrenaline flood: my writing partners at Critters.org, High Sierra Writers, and all the friends who provided me with critiques. “Möbius” was the first short story I ever wrote, and without your feedback it would still be the unpolished bilge I first sent you. So, because late is better than never: thank you.
Total fanboy moment with Orson Scott Card, whom I was lucky enough to have as a writing instructor during Writers of the Future. His novel Ender’s Game (actually, the whole Ender saga) is still one of my favorites.
Red carpet interview about my short story “Möbius.” One of many memorable moments from Writers of the Future.
