Cool, folks, we have an interview with Queer Voices, a fairly large outlet by our modest standards. Have a look.
Okay, here's one question and one partial answer from the interview:
A: Mark Twain would be the most important author. I really aim to poke fun at the world the way he does (I must have read Tom Sawyer 20 times). My writing style reflects in some sense my difficulties with the English language; it’s not wholly intended, and it’s not Twain’s style, of course. I can construct long sentences since I’m German, but often do I stumble, and the process of getting back on my feet, that’s also reflected in my style.
