Tell us a bit about your book.
North Morgan: [...] It was once described to me as taking a trip inside the mind of someone with a mental illness, which I liked a lot, because I wasn't aware that I had one.
How different/similar are you to your main character, Maine Hudson?
Is it fair to call it a grim read?
Thank you, I like grim. I wanted the book to be one step further than 'dark'. Everything aspires to be 'dark' these days. Someone even told me once that they liked Glee because of its dark undertones. Or when people describe Harry Potter as 'dark' to make themselves feel better about reading it. It's not dark; you're reading a children's book. My book has very little action and zero violence and it still makes you feel uncomfortable.
What are three books (by other writers) that you love?
Nausea - Jean Paul Sartre
The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath
The Stranger - Albert Camus
Generally, if you show me a book where nothing happens but everyone is very, very unhappy, I'll love it. Apart from the above, which are simply life-changing, I idolise F Scott Fitzgerald and JD Salinger.
