does the word "story"
mean to you?
Words to me only have value in the context of a sentence or paragraph.
I don’t romanticize over literature or words associated with it.
have a "reader" in mind when you write stories?
Sure. Who else is going to read my book? I think anyone with an open
mind can appreciate what I write so I am not writing to a specific
group of people. That being said I am sure that there are a ton of kids
that grew up in the 80's that might relate to my book. But I didn't
write it for them.
TSR: Is there
anything you'd like to ask someone who has read your collection,
anything at all?
JAC: No, not really. I
am putting out the works so I would expect questions directed towards
me than rather the other way around. Oh wait, I might ask: "Do you have
any pictures of Tyge?"
TSR: How does it feel knowing that people are buying your book?
JAC: A little scary.
I've come across people I haven't spoken to in 20 years that have found
me because of it. And there is usually a reason that we haven't spoken
for so long but it can be hard to remember why sometimes. Other than
that I feel quite pleased to be able to hopefully entertain them for
awhile in a non trite manner. I do not talk down to my readers, rather,
we are there together, the fuck ups we have always been.
TSR: What are
you working on now?
JAC: An animated movie
dealing with the apocalypse and human evolution. We are in
pre-production so I can’t say much more. Although I promise you it will
