What books do you want to read but haven’t gotten around to it yet?

MARK: The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.

What do you hope your obituary will day about you?

MARK: He came, he saw, he wrote well.

Location and life experiences can really influence writing, tell us where you grew up and where you now live?

LAYCE: I was born and raised in Orange Park, a suburb of Jacksonville, Florida. I attended college at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. I haven’t lived anywhere else though I planning to attend school in Savannah, Georgia next year.

MARK: I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I attended college at Clemson University in South Carolina with a year-off between my freshman and sophomore years living in Chicago, Illinois. I also lived in London, England for eight years (most of the 90s). I spent an unfortunate six-month period in California after I returned. I’ve lived in Northeast Florida (Fernandina Beach and Jacksonville) since 2003.

How did you develop your writing?

MARK: Years of practice, trial and error, and a good education.

Where do you get your inspiration?

LAYCE: Fairy tales, graphic novels, films, art, nature and other natural sciences, animation, conversations, and observations.

MARK: For An Infinitesimal Abundance of Color, I simply wrote down the story of what I had always imagined I would say if I ever had a daughter. More honestly, I actually debated in my head over the years what I would say to my daughter when she went through her “why’ stage. Should it be the truth or sugarcoated. This is the sugarcoated version with a hint of the truth implied at the end.
