Talking with Nerd for A Living!

Yes, I’m still in vacation mode. No, you can’t really see me. Just pretend I’m not here.

Back in May during Planet Comicon, I was interviewed by Adron Buske, one half of Nerd for A Living, who — in their own words — “assist people of the nerdish persuasion* to discover fulfilling, profitable and sustainable career paths in the industries they love. This includes comics, gaming, anime, film, TV, art, crafting, publishing, and more.” I met Adron and his wife, Wendy, at last year’s con, and participated in a panel discussion they hosted for that show.

This time around, Adron sought me out and put a microphone in front of my face, AND YOU’LL NEVER BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.


We spend a bit of time talking about my secret origin story, how Kevin and I became friends and writing partners, what it’s like to write for a venerable property like Star Trek, how does a writing collaboration work, the ups, downs, fun and pitfalls of social media, and what’s new and coming soon from Yours Truly (Hint: Vulcan Travel Guide. 24. Star Trek 50th anniversary). You can hear the whole thing by clicking on this little linky-type thing right here:

It was a fun chat, and many thanks to Adron (and Wendy!) for having me on the show.

Lay it on me.
