An hour-long conversation with Garon Whited, author of (among many other things) the popular Nightlord series, about his creative process.
Garon Whited was born in Kansas in 1969 or 1970; the original birth certificate is suspiciously unavailable and other records do not agree. After following his parents around the South for several years, he finally caught up to them and settled somewhere between Texas and Arkansas.
Garon attended several universities whether he was a student or not. While he was in college, he studied many subjects, none of which were helpful in earning a living. At present, he writes stories in the hope people will feed him. He has written several novels and various short stories and shows no signs of stopping. Having fought drunken dragons, sleepy medusae, snarky boojums, and quite a few loons, he is uniquely qualified to write fantastic fiction. His work tends toward the optimistic: Even his apocalyptic sci-fi novel has a surprisingly feel-good attitude.
When he’s not writing stories, Garon is still telling them. Garon is a fan of Role-Playing Games and started playing many years and many editions ago. It may have encouraged him to write by providing material. Garon loves to read, usually science fiction and fantasy. Strangely–perhaps ironically–he is not usually a fan of vampire novels.
