Author Interview – RJ Blain @rj_blain

Tell us a bit about your family.

I have a husband, four cats, and a warrior fish. I’ve been married for over ten years now (yikes!), and at least two of our kitties have been with us most of our marriage. The other two are recent adoptees to the family. Tsu Dhi, the Warrior Fish, observes his domain from his bowl in our kitchen.

He lets us live, under the strict condition we don’t forget to feed him and clean his water.

How do you work through self-doubts and fear?

This is a hard question for me. There are a lot of things I doubt and fear, but I just put my butt down in my chair, brace myself, and do what needs done. If I can’t solve it, I ignore it. If I can solve it, I address it. Then I move on. But some self-doubts never go away, especially when dealing with book sales and reviews. I just smile, wince, and carry on.

What scares you the most?

Spiders. Oh, without a doubt, spiders scare me the most. As do heights. And my husband getting into a car accident on his way home from work. Does this list have a limit? I don’t have to just pick one, do I? There are lots of things I fear, though I try not to let them get to me too much.

What makes you happiest?

Writing, Reading, and playing computer games with my husband. I love seeing what I can put characters through when I write. It’s a whole new world I get to explore day after day. Reading is for when I just want to escape, but I don’t want to be the one who has to put in the heavy lifting. I may be a writer (and freelance editor) by day, but I’m backstabbing rogue at night! Gaming is definitely how I unwind and just enjoy myself without having to think too hard.

What’s your greatest character strength?

I’ve been told by a multitude of trustworthy sources that I have the patience of a saint, so I’m going to go with that one. I like trying to give everyone a chance to prove themselves and become better – especially at writing. I think giving someone the gift of my patience is the only way I can really help another writer or person do what they want to do.
