Serial Interview: Christopher Golden

The past week and weekend have been rather crazy around here, and there, and everywhere, so here's one quick question for the Golden boy this morning:

Have you ever been oddly or unexpectedly inspired by something, something that prompted a novel idea?

I'm not sure if you'd count this, but the first few chapters of WILDWOOD ROAD are taken entirely from a dream I had. Creepy as hell, and I knew I had to use it.

I love when dreams inspire stories! I try to write down ideas and dreams upon waking, if they are song- or scene- or novel-worthy.

A lot of times, story ideas come from things that are said as jokes. For instance, Jim Moore and I came up with BLOODSTAINED OZ on an elevator, joking around about vampires taking over Oz. Now we're getting ready to write two sequels.

I am now picturing vampires actually boarding the elevator.

Drop by Bildungsroman next Monday for the last (for now) installment of our serial interview!

Read the previous parts of the interview:

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8 | Part 9 | Part 10 | Part 11

Pick up Christopher Golden's newest novel, Poison Ink, from a bookstore near you! Look for it in the Young Adult/Teen Fiction department.
