I’ve always been an avid reader and loved writing stories and poems. I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and like most Brazilians, I love soccer, and sunny, warm weather!
1. What are you working on right now?
I have a couple of projects; another novel that I have started a couple of years back and now I’m reinventing it, and a guide book about raising vegetarian kids.
2. How does your work differ from others in its genre?
I don’t like to categorize my writing in a particular genre. In poetry, I write mostly free verses and different themes. In prose, my novel falls under literary fiction, however, I used surrealism and less dialogue to present the characters and their goals, and an element of surprise at the end to wrap up the story in an unexpected twist.
3. Why do you write Poetry?
I find poetry easy to write. In a novel, you have to think the whole plot, plan the characters, and describe the scenes with more realism. In poetry, I find that I can be more creative and somewhat vague, making allusions and playing with the words without giving them a specific meaning, but more of a feeling. It’s like expressing yourself without giving away too many details, yet letting all your emotions show.
4. How does your writing process work?
I don’t have a method, a routine. When I feel like I need to create, I just start typing away.
5. What inspires you?
Our world. There are too many beautiful things in this world to be inspiration for tales and tales…
6. What age did you start?
I can’t remember specifically, but before I was a teenager I was already writing poems, short stories and make up magazines!
7. Where do you see yourself in ten years?
I don’t like to visualize or plan anything that far in advance. I’m the kind of person that takes a day at a time. I’d love publish more books and become a popular writer, though.
8. Anything else you’d like to share?
Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog with this awesome interview. Here’s a poem from my latest book, Holes in Space – A Poetry Collection:
1. Please tell us your full name age and occupation?
My name is Brad Montgomery and I’ll be 30 in March. I work for my father in our national restaurant business. I handle problems with restaurants and how they run. Travel is a big part of my job I’m good at it and I love it.
2. What can you share with us about yourself?
I work really hard and I play really hard. I love women and they seem to like me pretty well too. I love classic cars, especially my own 1965 Shelby Mustang that I rebuilt all by myself. I’m also lucky enough to have enough money to enjoy the things I love.
3. What was it that drew you to Kit?
Awe, so many things drew me to Kit. Did you know she’s a Car-hop? A darn good one too and cute enough that you would want her to wait on you and you alone. Man, she can stop your heart, she did mine.
4. Have you been in love before?
Love? No, I didn’t even think love really existed. Don’t get me wrong there were lots of women I enjoyed. I think they enjoyed me too, but for me it was all fun and games.
5. What is your favorite thing about Kit?
My favorite thing about Kit… Wow that’s tough because there is so much about Kit that’s special. However, if I have to choose, I would say that it’s the way she makes me feel. She doesn’t even know that the sight of her makes me happy and excited about each new day with her. Yeah, it’s the way she makes me feel.
6. Has anyone ever come between you and Kit or tried?
I can answer this question with one word. Claudette! A woman who lied, manipulated and conspired to break Kit and me up. Crazy is the only way to describe her.
7. If you could change something about Kit what would it be?
There are times with Kit that would make me nuts, because her way of handling a problem is to run away or not talk about it. Although, when I think about the two of us making up, I have to say even that it wasn’t bad at all.
8. How do you see your future with Kit?
I see us together, just being happy.
9. What’s the biggest hurdle you’ve had to overcome?
Figuring out what my feelings for Kit were and admitting them.
10. What is the sweetest part of you and her together?
Discovering and enjoying our new found feeling for each other and chasing our dreams together.
11 Are there future stories with you and her together?
Yes, the book is called “Sixties Inspired” Hopefully coming soon.
Anything else you’d like to share about the sixties girl?
Just that Kit is The Sixties Girl, She will take you back to a time when love wasn’t so complicated and a lot more fun. Join Kit and me as we take you into our lives and give you a front row seat to our love story.
