Interview with Writer Keegan Lawrence

Let us know a little about yourself and how we can connect with you via website, blog, books, and social media sites.

My name is Keegan Lawrence and I do just about everything, but mostly I’m a writer. I’ve been writing since the age of four (when I first discovered a word processor on our dinosaur computer), and I work mainly in the genres of poetry, science fiction, and horror. You can connect with me on Twitter @KeeganLawrence_ and on Medium, @keeganlawrence.

What is your favorite food?

Anything cheesy! Namely, though, cheese pizza. I love pizza.

What is your favorite thing about being a blogger, writer, or author?

I love writing for many reasons, and I never know how to fully answer this question. My writing is a wild mixture of my experiences, beliefs, traumas, passions, and so on. So, I suppose my favorite thing about being a writer is that it makes me feel optimistic; if these characters have been through tough times and survived, I can survive too. If I dedicate my life to creating stories that I hope will inspire others in the way that certain stories have inspired me, I can consider my life “complete” in a way.

What advice do you have for new writers just starting out?

Never stop writing. Ever. Even if you think you’re terrible. Even if you think no one cares. I promise that with time and dedication, your writing will improve. There are billions of people in this world, and I fully believe that there’s someone out there who will love your writing, someone out there who will be touched by your work. Find your niche. Just don’t give up.

What has influenced you the most as a writer?

Other writers. I read a lot and watch a lot of television. I am constantly examining the works of other writers and immersing myself in their ideas because creativity is inspiring to me and love that there are people out there who are brave enough to tell the stories in their mind. Also, my past experiences are an inextricable influence on my writing. I don’t think my writing would be the same if I hadn’t been through a little bit of hell.

What does a typical day of writing look like for you?

In complete honesty, it depends on my mood. Sometimes I can write thousands of words in an hour, and other times I have to force myself to write. Mostly, it involves a lot of coffee.

What projects are you working on right now?

A few. I’m working on an interactive fiction story called Extradivine, which is about a man who dedicated his childhood to finding aliens and then, upon becoming an adult, became discouraged and stopped believing. Spoiler alert, though: he finds one. I’m also working on a science fiction novel called Virtue Force, which tells the story of a man who discovers that he has some terrifying superpowers, and joins a team of superheroes that might be secretly not so great. Both in their early stages, both very important to me.

Interview with Blogger and Novelist Cole

Let us know a little about yourself and how we can connect with you via website, blog, books, and social media sites.


I’m nearly 30 and I live in England! When I’m not bumbling about on the internet, I’m an English teacher for teenagers. In addition to writing and reading, I’m also very interested in video games, baking, cats, and comics.
I am currently working on a couple of historical LGBTQ+ novels and I also write poetry.
My blog is at http://www.lordcoledemort.com and I’m on Twitter @/lordcoledemort


What is your favorite food?


I absolutely adore lasagna, and I could definitely eat it every single day. I’m trying to eat less meat, so I’m into vegetarian lasagna at the minute.


If you could learn how to make any food what would it be?


I’m a fairly chaotic baker, so I’d really like to learn how to make cakes and sweet things in the kitchen without causing total carnage. The last cake I made collapsed, so it’s clearly not something I’m good at!


What is your favorite genre to read?


I am obsessed with historical romance- Julia Quinn is a real favorite of mine. There’s something so comforting and fluffy about sinking into these stories.


What is your favorite movie that was based off a book?


Probably The Princess Bride! I love the characters and it’s so funny. The book is brilliant, too, but I think I might actually prefer the film (which is a bad writer thing to say)!


What are you reading right now?


I’m reading the second Nevermoor book- Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend, which is a lovely Young Adult light fantasy with big Harry Potter vibes. I’m really enjoying it.


What projects are you working on right now?


I’ve got two novels I’m working on, and I’m editing a third; I am not sure what I’m going to do with them when they’re done! I’m also writing poems and considering starting a short story project.
