Justin Holt spent the last week interviewing me about Transubstantiate, and other things too – how I got started, what my influences were, my thoughts on various genres, and what my plans are for the future. Be sure to check it out.
Richard Thomas is a busy man. He’s a husband and father of twins. He’s a graphic designer. He helps moderate a writing workshop at The Cult, one of the most popular author websites in the world. He’s helped edit zines and magazines alike. He’s pursuing his MFA in Fiction. He’s part of a group of up-and-coming writers who each year help each other through the hardships of writing a novel. And yeah, he’s also a writer whose debut novel, a neo-noir thriller called Transubstantiate, was published in July 2010, the flagship novel of the upstart independent press Otherworld Publications. High on life and hell-bent on sharing in the revelry of being part of a new movement of fresh voices to the literary world Richard stopped by Oxyfication to share a little bit about himself, how his debut novel Transubstantiate came to be, and what it’s like when one of your literary heroes tells you that your writing reminds them of their literary heroes.
