author Peter Benjaminson and an image of his book The Life and Times of Betty Boop

Why is writing important to you and why do you think it’s an important medium for the world? Writing articles and books makes me happy. I think it’s important for the world because without writing, there’d be no detailed communication whatsoever.

What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block? I’ve never had this problem, thank God.

What is your favorite time to write? Soon after I get up in the morning, when I have a lot of energy.

What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received and would like to impart to other writers? Never never never never never give up trying to create a piece of writing you’re proud of and trying to get it published for the largest monetary compensation possible.

What excites you most about being a writer in today’s age? The ability to do research and publicity electronically as well as physically.

Peter Benjaminson’s The Life and Times of Betty Boop is out now with Applause.
