Crawl Inside the World of Vampires…Interview with author, Robert McCammon (part 1)

interviews, authors, ,best sellers, writers       Robert McCammon has a huge fan base and even though he is trying to meet a deadline, he was kind enough to contribute to The Writer’s Corner by sitting down and letting me interview him.

Q. Where do you write? Do you have a special room, shed, barn, special space for your writing?

A. I have a regular office, my books and research materials all set up neatly…yeah, I wish! They start out neatly and somehow get all over the floor. Otherwise, it’s a pretty ordinary space. A poster of the “Night Scotsman” train on the wall, a black-and-white Escher print…that’s about it. Oh, and I keep my joystick plugged in so I can play airplane and racing games when I need a break.

Q. Do you have any special rituals when you sit down to write? (sharpened #2 pencils, legal pad, cup of tea, glass of brandy, favorite pajamas, etc.)

A. Hmmmm…I guess I do have my cup of coffee at hand. Sometimes it’s a glass of wine, just depends on the mood.  Sometimes depending upon what I’m writing,  it’s a glass of whiskey, too!

Q. What is your mode of writing? (long hand? Pencil? Computer?)

A. Computer.

This is a wonderful video from Robert and he goes on to tell what writing means to him.


A fan (Ben R.) writes:    ‘Many people mark significant events in their lives based on where they were when they heard “the news.” Where were you when Kennedy was shot? Where were you when the Twin Towers fell? Where were you when you read the latest Robert McCammon book? Yes, that fits in my timeline perfectly. I can still remember where I was the first time I read “Blue World,” or “Mine,” or even “Swan Song.” I can even tell you exactly where I was both times I sobbed during “Boys Life,” and where I was sitting the day I played hookie from school so I could read “Speaks The Night Bird.” I can even tell you what I drank the night before when I stayed home sick and read “Night Boat.” Robert McCammon has been my favorite author since I was in high school reading “Mine” while I hid behind my tuba during band practice. I never hesitate a second to recommend any of his works.  His writings are so diverse there’s always something for everyone. Whether it’s aliens, vampires, parasitic twins, or LSD crazed baby snatchers, no one will be disappointed by this fine author.’
