Today I have Eugene Lambert on my blog today with an interview with blogger Andrew! It is a fun, silly interview that will make you laugh and smile.
Eugene Lambert grew up in Wolverhampton, a fate worse than cliché. A refugee from the worlds of academia, science and engineering, he graduated from Bath Spa University with an MA in Writing For Young People in late 2013. When not scribbling in his cabin, he flies gliders and goes for long walks in the Cotswolds. Rumours of his being an identical twin are ... true.
Eugene's debut SF novel, The Sign of One, was shortlisted for the 2014 Bath Novel Award. The list of writers who have influenced and inspired him is a long one, but Alan Garner and Patrick Ness would both be near the top of it!
Q. Sum your book's essence in five words.
A. Twins; adventure; mystery; horror; prejudice
Q.What was the last song that made you dance round your kitchen?
A. That is classified. But it could've been an early hit by a Swedish band beginning and ending with A.
Q. If you could, what's the one piece of advice you would give to your pre-published self?
A. Be prepared for it not getting any easier!
Q.Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter?
A. Winter. Definitely winter. Give me snow or give me death.
Q.Cat or Dog?
A. Cat. (Don't have to pick its poo up!)
Q. Plain or flowery?
A. Plain. (Sorry. Introvert me.)
