Meet the Author: Peter Germany (post originally published in August 2012)


 

Today I am featuring in my blog series Peter Germany. He is not a published author yet, but he is a member of the Indie Community, and I am sure that we won’t have to wait long to see some of his stories published. I have been lucky enough as to read some of his stories, which belong to the sci-fi and horror genres, and I can tell you that people will love his work for sure. I can recognise talent when I see it! So enjoy the interview and keep an eye on this author. His stories are sure winners.

  • Describe yourself.

I would say that I am honest, hard working, loyal, thoughtful (sometimes lol).

  • What is your favourite fruit flavour?

Strawberry 

  • What is your favourite day of the week?

Monday, because it’s the start of a new week

  • Which is your favourite time of the day?

The time between getting home from work and bed.

  • Are you a morning person or a night person?

Night, most definitely night. Most mornings I’m a zombie and seeing as I don’t drink coffee I’m not a happy zombie!

  • What is your favourite breakfast meal?

A full English Breakfast

  • What is your favourite colour and why?

Green, because it’s a very natural colour

  • Which is your most favourite book ever?

The Forever War, by Joe Haldeman. (Note by Cinta: I knew he was going to answer this, because Peter was so kind as to gift me that book when we met in Oxford in July 2012 :D)

  • What kind of music do you like?

Anything, really, as long as it’s fast with a good beat

  • Which is your favourite genre of films?

Science fiction and horror.

  • Which is your most favourite place in this Earth?

My back garden. I live surrounded by fields and it’s very peaceful

  • Which animal would you want to be and why?

A shark, but I’m not sure which one. They are ancient creatures that will no doubt survive longer than mankind will.

  • If you could have a luncheon with any 3 people (real or fictitious), who would you choose and why?

Joe Haldeman, because he’s such a fantastic writer I would love to pick his brains.  Scott Sigler, again Sigler is a writer and he is one of my idols because he’s made himself a New York Times bestseller and his work rate is breathtaking. The third would be Guillermo del Toro, the movie director/writer. He has an amazing imagination and passion for telling stories. Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy 2 are two great examples of his work.

  • If you were granted 3 wishes, what would you ask for?

Two of those wishes would be to give good health to two people who are very close to me. The third I’d say world peace.

  • If you were stranded on a lonely beach, what are the 5 things that you would want to survive?

1-A decent tent.  2-a science fiction anthology.  3-a fishing net.  4-a box of matches.  5-A (fully charged) satellite phone 

  • If you could be anyone, who would you be?

There is no one that I would want to be except me, although if I become half the man my Dad is I will be very happy.

  • What is the one thing you wish you could change in yourself?     More discipline.
  • What is the one thing you wish you could do if given the chance?

Walk on Mars

  • What would you do if you won the lottery?

Look after my loved ones, go on holiday, and then write, write, write!

  • If you knew that this was your last day on Earth, how would you spend it?

With my loved ones.

  • Were you a naughty kid or a nice kid?

A Little of both.

  • What was the happiest moment in your life?

That’s a tough one, I’ve had a few very happy moments but not one that I’d say stands out. Ask me again in five years time.

  • Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

Hopefully I’ll be married and settled down and a published writer.  I’d also like to be working on an anthology.

  • What is the weirdest/craziest thing you have ever done?     Nothing, I’ve led a rather boring life lol
  • What is your definition of an incredible weekend?

One that leaves you smiling for a long time.

  • Which is the best holidays you have ever had?

Not really holidays but I go to my Grandad’s anual army reunion.  It’s great spending some time just me and my Grandad.

  • Have you got a phobia you want to share?

I havent found one, yet!

  • What makes you angry?

A lot but I keep it in check. I don’t like who I am when I’m angry

  • What do you do when you feel sad?

Talk to my Girlfriend 

  • Who or what inspires you?

My Dad inspires me, as does Scott Sigler, and there are a couple of songs that inspire me too: Birthright by Celldweller and Written In The Stars by Tinie Tempah.

  • Congratulations! Now you can freely rant about your book(s) and/or projects.

I do not have anything ready for public eyes yet but you can follow my progress at http://petergermany.wordpress.com/ I’m aiming at having something ready to put up on Kindle by the end of the year. So watch this space.
  I would just quickly like to thank Cinta for this opportunity.
